SAN FRANCISCO — Transit managers are celebrating the delivery of new Siemens-built light rail vehicles for use on San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency tracks.

The modern vehicles feature better operator visibility, new seating arrangements, a regenerative braking system, LED lighting, and other energy-efficient features. The cars are being built at the Siemens’ Sacramento, Calif., manufacturing plant just a few hours away from San Francisco. The light-rail vehicles are part of a 215-unit order.

The agency says the Muni Metro trains will enter service in late summer 2017.
