The specification provides guidelines for both commuter and rapid transit rail cars. The purpose of the specification is to establish uniform practices for the preparation of detail procurement specifications for these two types of vehicles to aid in the use and comparative analysis of the specification content. The specification encourages the use of modern technology and innovation by establishing measurable performance objectives rather than specifying existing equipment or equivalent. The specification covers all subsystems of the vehicle applicable to this type of equipment as a class and not unique to one design.
