OAKLAND (KCBS) – Bay Area Rapid Transit could start putting its long-awaited new railcars into service as soon as this Thanksgiving.
Officials told the San Francisco Chronicle that the first 10 cars have passed a lengthy list of safety tests, and are ready to go.
BART and railcar manufacturer Bombardier have to submit paperwork to the Public Utilities Commission, triggering a review process that's expected to take three weeks.
