Aug 14 2017, 7:08 pm

You’ll be seeing a new train running on the Green Line today.

The first of 24 AZUR trains will be in service today for testing and passengers are encouraged to climb aboard.

According to STM, the purpose of these runs is to analyze how the well the trains run on the line while carrying a normal passenger line.

Similar tests were carried out on the orange line in February 2016 but the rollout of the new Metro cars was stopped due to malfunctions

STM says that the AZUR train’s appearances on the Green line will only last a few weeks as tests are required before trains are officially rolled out for service.
