Too bad they don't have a video of the "C" section inside, which I think is the only difference between II and IIa vehicles.

I don't believe anything. These were order on options from the Central Corridor order. The Type IIIs on order for Southwest and Bottineau have been reconfigured to have the seats facing the aisle in the C section similar to TriMet's Type V configuration.

HuskyGrad, are you sure these aren't those? The numbers are still sequential in the 2xx range, but I'm not sure metro transit will treat the new variant as a type III - they're the same as type II except the seats, and some minor other details, so they may still be considered type II.

I saw the "C" section. The seats are the same as the older Type 2.

Cool, I didn't realize we still had any more of the first Siemens style being delivered.
