A, B & G Lines Have Positive Train Control (PTC)

PTC is new technology mandated by Congress. By 2018, ALL railroads are required to have installed it. It provides an extra layer of safety, and its primary characteristics are collision avoidance, speed restrictions, and rail worker wayside safety. The A and B lines are the first rail lines in the nation to have the technology built into them, rather than retrofitted. The technology uses GPS and other wireless technology to prevent accidents.
