The R211 base order included two 10 car trains with open gangways. The options on the order can either be conventional cars or open gangway but the MTA has yet to decide AFAIK.

Also the MTA is considering open gangways for the A division R262s but has postponed the procurement process until at least next month. Probably 2025 before those cars hit the number lines.
