    Meet the New Look of Bart
    This is what the new look Bart trains could look like.

     

    The Chron has higher-res renderings of the proposed BART trains. They weren't kidding about it being a huge project— the first ones are slated to come in 2014, with complete delivery by 2024.

    They're planning on getting $1 billion for the project from the federal government, and scraping together $2.4 billion from fare hikes and other sources.

    The agency has some deep introspection ahead: hard or soft seats, side-facing or forward-facing... the kinds of decisions that could decide whether the cars stay eerily cushioned, or become enameled and utilitarian. Pick your poison, transbay commuters.
