Shine E

It's true:

New York City Transit yesterday began rolling out new subway cars on the E line which feature automated announcements, digital information boards and a screen that scrolls upcoming station names.
Other subway lines, including the L and W, already have the cars.

The new subway cars, called R160s, have brighter interiors and a smoother ride. Most of the cars along the line date to the 1960s.
