The R160 is a class of New Technology subway cars built for the New York City Subway B Division. Entering service between 2006 and 2010, they replaced all R38, R40/A, and NYCT-operated R44 cars, and most R32 and R42 cars. The R160s are very similar to the R143s, but the two-car types cannot run together in the same train. The biggest difference between them is the FIND (Flexible Information and Notice Display) system on the R160s in place of static LED maps on the R143s.
