HART May 2016 Financial Status Update
How many rail cars will make up the HART fleet?
HART will have a fleet of 80 rail cars. Each train will contain 4 cars coupled together, so we’ll have a total of 20 4-car trains. We’ll likely put about 17 or 18 of those trains in service daily. Each 4-car train will be able to carry 650-800 passengers at a time. Trains will run 20 hours a day, from 4 a.m. to midnight. The cars will be cleaned and serviced overnight. Trains will arrive at stations about every 5 minutes during morning and afternoon rush hours, and about every 11 minutes the rest of the day and night. HART’s trains will have a top speed of about 55 miles per hour.
