The R188 has now been confirmed by the MTA. However, it will be know as the R34188. In addition, several R142/A's will be converted for CBTC.

Awesome. I wonder if it'll have the same basic design of the R142/a.

The R142s in the 6line are looking old already! It shame but not surprising! also Ive notice the increased damaged windows and wall on many of the newer fleet these days! Has the mta give up the fight?

Could also be the budget freeze systemwide and thus the MTA has already cut it matience on trains like the R142's etc.

The R34188 is just a solicitation number,not an offical contract
number.

Huh? All IRT lines are at capacity save for one, which I think is the 3. The R188 will ONLY be for the 7 because the other cars still have 10-20 years left in them.

They should really bring back the seats from the R110As to make it more welcoming and versatile.

Did the R110A have bench seats or bucket seats?

The 6 is just fine with the R142A. I believe that the R188 should go to the 1 and 7 Lines. It would help out the one with the issue of door recycling at stations like Dyckman St, 168th, and ESPECIALLY between 116th & 96th Streets. It would also get rid of the confusion with the 7 Local and Express routes.

I like the R110a seating. It was more aeshetically pleasing than the R142/a seating and the layout maximized the number of seats in the car.

They still have time to decide on the seating. I don't even think the trains have been fully designed, right? Just named?

I think they might bring in the new cars for the opening of the 7 extension.

The R110A seats also had transversed benches for better view of the windows. That's why I favor them.

I wasn't aware of that, either. Thanks for the information!
