Alstom to equip TTC with train control

Posted on May 11, 2009

Alstom has been selected by the Toronto Transit Commission, City of Toronto, Province of Ontario, Canada to supply the CBTC Automatic Train Control (ATC) for the Yonge University Spadina Subway Line.

 

The $43.1 million contract, plus options and alternatives, includes the design and supply of equipment for the train control upgrade of the existing Yonge University Spadina Subway Line.

 

Alstom will provide Urbalis, its train control and telecommunications system, based on CBTC (bidirectional radio-based technology). The Urbalis solution allows for more efficient operation and makes it possible to increase train frequency and transport capacity. The system is capable of providing headway of up 90 seconds or better under normal operating conditions.

 

The new ATC system is scheduled to start revenue service in 2012.
