MBTAPositive Train Control (PTC) Program Management and Technical Support Services
The implementation of a Positive Train Control 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. The PTC Implementation Plan provides for the installation of hardware on all commuter rail lines by the end of 2018 with full implementation by 2020. 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 a number of other project controls directives.
