Positive Train Control (PTC) Network Integration

Project Description

Positive Train Control (PTC) is a life-saving innovation that will make travel by rail even safer. Metrolink will be the first commuter rail in the nation to implement this state-of-the-art technology, moving the agency significantly closer toward its goal of becoming the safest commuter rail in the nation.

Positive Train Control (PTC) is GPS-based safety technology capable of preventing train-to-train collisions, over-speed derailments, unauthorized incursion into work zones and train movement through switches left in the wrong position. PTC monitors and, if necessary, controls train movement in the event of human error. PTC may also bring trains to a safe stop in the event of a natural disaster.
