Making A Safe Commuter Rail Industry Even Safer
All commuter rail systems have successfully met the 2018 Positive Train Control (PTC) congressional milestones and are 100 percent committed to meet the December 2020 deadline for full PTC implementation.
What is PTC?
Known as PTC, Positive Train Control is complex signaling and communications technology that is designed to make rail even safer. This cutting-edge technology has been developed, tested, and installed in rail systems across the country.
Most of PTC can’t be bought “off-the-shelf,” it comes from industry-wide innovation to meet the technical challenges. Many of these components are new technologies being designed and developed for PTC, and railroads must integrate them with their existing systems.
