APPLYING ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
And a century of engineering , Kawasaki
has introduced a
high–capacity bi–level that exceeds every other low–level boarding
commuter car in the industry. With true low–level boarding,
the trains require no multiple steps to and from the platform.
The L3 features monocoque stainless steel construction
with no center sill. This ensures strength and maximum safety
for passengers in the event of collision.
The Stainless steel resists corrosion, which
increases safety and cuts costs long–term. And with it
the L3 cars meet strict APTA SS- C&S and 49CFR238
Other benefits to transit systems and their riders
include operation speed: the cars are capable of FRA Tier- 1
high speeds of 125 mph. The elimination of the center sill allows
excellent truck and wheel clearances for the braking arrangements
necessary for safe
high speed operation. And smart equipment arrangement, with
unencumbered access to controls and parts, makes maintenance
quick and easy.
The fully- engineered L3 can be delivered with
a maximum design review schedule, delivery time and commissioning
time. Little more is required than the selection of interior
colors and exterior markings, Seating arrangements and passengers
amenities are flexible and can be easily worked in to the design
to meet specific needs. The result is maximum value for the
Kawasaki is the first manufacturer to bring
an updated version of this car type in more than 30 years .
The L3 is a design solution that addresses the needs of
transit systems and their passengers with innovation and efficiency
