Metro Reduced Seating And Other Modifications

by The Met » April 3rd, 2015, 12:27 pm

After successful removal of seats on first generation X'Trapolis trains between 2010-2013, Metro has now decided to expand the program to the Comeng and Siemens fleets. The new layouts include reduction of seating around door areas, new accessible areas and spaces, as well as some improved stickers and signs.

Trains known to be completed so far:

I'm not sure if this is the right topic for this, but I think the latest X'Trapolis trains have two less seats in the M carriages.
This is 189M.
Older X'Traps have an extra pair of seats on the right where the yellow marking is for a wheelchair.

Yes the latest X'Trapolis feature improvements in that area with clear wheelchair/accessibility spaces marked out along with the removal of those two seats to enable a larger area for the wheelchair/accessibility space.

Also so far this week I can the following to the list:

575M-1138T-576M
585M-1143T-586M
591M-1146T-592M
645M-1173T-646M
