    The new R211s cars will start arriving in 2020. They will replace the 1970s R46, the remaining R32, and Staten Island Rapid Transit R44 rolling stock. The R179 cars are arriving now and some are already running on the J and Z lines.

    The R188 cars (new cars and rebuilt R142A cars) are fully in place on the 7 line.

    The R179 cars are being put in service on the J/Z line (4 car sets - car numbers 3050 and up)

    The 5 car sets (most likely some to go to the A and C lines) are still in testing phase
