Commuter Rail Fact Sheet
The project evaluated various rail technologies, and the preferred technology for the corridor is Electric Multiple Unit (EMU). The EMU is heavier than a light rail vehicle, but operates in the same way. This vehicle will be powered via an overhead contact system (OCS) similar to that provided for the existing Light Rail Transit (LRT) lines. Facilities to distribute power to the trains, known as paralleling stations, will be provided at two to four locations along the project alignment, typically within station areas.
