Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) Before and After Cost Study

The performing organization will conduct an in-depth study of the effectiveness of implementing a Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) system at a US transit agency. Using the MUNI/Market Street Tunnel CBTC application for the study also allows examining the effectiveness of phased implementation, which in this case started with limited take-over of the conventional control system and eventually phased into fully automated control under CBTC.
