We’re expanding our Haysboro Storage Facility, which we use to store light rail vehicles (LRVs).
Opened in 1984 to support three-car light rail transit service, the facility has capacity to house 60 LRVs with only 30 stored indoors.
The expansion will support four-car trains, increasing total storage capacity to 76 LRVs, of which 58 LRVs can be stored indoors. Indoor storage will prolong vehicle lifespans and improve service reliability and efficiency.
Specific facility updates will include:
Facility construction began January 2024 with completion slated for spring 2025.
With construction underway, our Red Line CTrain service March 2024 through early 2025 will feature frequent three-car service, which results in similar capacity to less frequent four-car trains.
