This project will fund the second phase of Positive Train Control (PTC). Project funds will update back office equipment, components, hardware, software, and other equipment that is necessary to maintain safe and consistent operations of Metra’s interoperable PTC system. This project will fund the purchase, installation, and training of a modern, streamlined PTC system to replace the current PTC back office before the end of its useful life. This new system will have an advanced user interface that will provide operational self-checks and will enable safer operations
