MBTAPositive Train Control (PTC) Program Management and Technical Support Services
Date of Completion
A PTC/ATC safety system is designed to prevent train-to-train collisions, over-speed derailments, train movements into established work zone limits, and movement of trains through track switches that may have been left in the incorrect position.
Implementation of the MBTA’s PTC/ATC system covers 394 combined Commuter Rail track miles. Phase I, PTC implementation, was completed in 2020. Phase II, ATC implementation, was completed in 2020 for trains originating from South Station and is ongoing for trains originating from North Station.
City Point Partners is coordinating the public information program which includes many weekend Commuter Rail service shutdowns and implementation of alternative busing service.
We are also providing updates and tracking of contractor payments and schedules as well as other project controls directives.
