Re: And the R-179 contract goes to....

WHEN they ran is the operative comment. As to rider utility, the middle door only ingress/egress at high level was a pain. The Bredas have 4 usable doors per side either low or high. The whole SF subway/surface system needed either to run extremely tight headways or to be merged at tunnel portals in order to run sufficient trains for each route. Muni has managed to demonstrate inability to run tight headways even with semi automated train control. As to coupling/uncoupling at the portals, Muni personnel have either proved they were incompetent or that the couplers and on board control hardware were junk. With the Bredas Muni doesn't even try.
