Positive Train Control (PTC) 

PTC deployment is mandated by the Federal government and is key to ensuring that our national railroads achieve their goal of zero accidents. The Federally-mandated PTC infrastructure implementation is aimed at achieving:

  • Safe train separation (or collision avoidance).

  • Speed enforcement.

  • Temporary speed restrictions.

  • Rail worker wayside safety.


TC has completed PTC infrastructure projects for MTA Metro-North Railroad and MTA Long Island Railroad. The MNR PTC Infrastructure project spanned its entire rail network, where TC overcame significant logistical and sequence-of-work challenges.
