Igot a chance to ride one of the new BART trains into work today and it was a real treat!
Cushioned seats, not much seating (to allow for standing room) and an automated voice telling you what the next stops were. The noise was reduced quite a bit as compared to standard, older BART trains. The wheels were a heck of a lot less noisy and the car didn't seem to jar as much.
Overall, it was a great experience!
