CTA Red Line riders are getting their first look at the new 5000-series rail cars.

Two new eight-car trains were added to the Red Line fleet Monday.

The 5000-series cars feature aisle-facing seats and state-of-the-art technology that should create a smoother ride for passengers.

The cars have already debuted on the Pink and Green lines.

The CTA will eventually receive more than 700 of the cars at a cost of just over $1 billion.
