Do you prefer the letter “T’’ large or small or the colored stripes wide or narrow? Perhaps polka dots strike your fancy?

The green, orange, and red lines are getting new rail cars and the MBTA is asking the public’s help in choosing the new designs. Choose between three sets of exterior designs for each of the lines and then place your vote on surveymonkey.com through Nov. 3.

“In recognition of how important our customers are, and the importance of the role the T plays in the region, we are launching this contest to take this process one step further and let our customers have direct input on the final exterior design of the new vehicles,’’ said MassDOT Secretary Stephanie Pollack in a statement.

The new cars will have computer-controlled lighting, heating, and cooling technologies, improved signage, and meet the latest Americans with Disabilities Act requirements. The first of 24 new Green Line cars will be delivered in 2017, followed by the first of 152 Orange Line cars in 2018 and the first of 132 Red Line cars in 2019.
