San Francisco's Bay Area Rapid Transit, or BART as it's known to locals, has selected DesignworksUSA, the design consultancy and subsidiary of BMW Group, to re-design the city's traincars and metro-rail experience. The project is said to complete by 2017.
DesignworksUSA's scope of work for BART’s Fleet of the Future includes the train cars' exterior, which will convey a style and shape with unique signature expression to the exterior passenger information system. Inside the new train cars, DesignworksUSA will create the main interior design features of the new train cars, and incorporate the controls in the design of the train operator's cab.
