It also marked the first showing of vehicles with the new “METRO” branding which will be used on light rail and bus rapid transit lines going forward. Both the new Siemens LRV and one of the original Bombardier LRVs showed up in a brighter paint scheme of yellow, blue, and light gray, but still following the general pattern established by the older units when they began service on the Hiawatha Line in 2004.
