New Low-Floor Light Rail Trains Enter Final Testing Phase
SacRT is moving to the third and final phase of testing for the new low-floor light rail trains. The upcoming phase, known as "Burn-in Testing,"begins December 6, 2023, marking a crucial step toward the deployment for service.

Testing Details:

The Burn-in testing phase will be conducted systemwide on the Gold, Green, and Blue Lines, Monday through Friday, between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. This schedule is designed to minimize any impact on light rail service.

During Burn-in Testing, the new low-floor trains will operate as active trains, pulling up to stations, opening doors, deploying ramps, closing doors, and moving to the next station. This testing process is meant to mimic an actual train in service, so the headsigns and announcements will appear as an active train, so they can be tested at each station. The new low-floor trains will have large "Test Train" decals on doors and windows to prevent boarding.

Learn more about the process at sacrt.com/newtrains.
