NEW YORK — New subway cars, long delayed in their delivery, will start rolling through New York MTA stations before the end of the year, amNewYork reports.

A batch of about 70 new subway cars will go into service this year to replace the oldest subway cars in the agency’s fleet on the J, Z, and C lines, with another 230 or so expected to be put into service as they’re delivered over the course of 2018.

Originally expected to be delivered in 2014, the first car from manufacturers Bombardier Transportation didn’t arrive in New York until September of last year. The MTA will be able to double the speed of testing these cars thanks to a second, 1.7-mile test track being built in Brighton Beach. For the full story, click here.
