Aerorail - Rolling Stock

The express car has 60 seats and is 11' wide, 60' long, and 12'6" high. An empty vehicle weighs 60,000 pounds. Maximum passenger capacity is 160 people; 60 seated and 100 standing. The upper 30" of the vehicle is separated from passengers by a firewall. Construction is aircraft composite with composite transparent windows. The space below the floor contains a ladder that can be lowered in case an emergency evacuation is necessary. These vehicles are ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant. Station Platform height is level with vehicle height, which is difficult to obtain with light rail systems.
