According to the terms of the agreement, Quester Tangent will design and install its train control and monitoring and diagnostic (MDS) system on an NYCT R142 subway car. The system will run for a 12-month demonstration period to prove its reliability and adaptability to the demanding NYCT passenger rail environment. After a successful evaluation, Quester Tangent will become a qualified supplier of trainline control & networks and MDS systems for future NYCT procurements.

With 11 of the top 20 transit authorities as customers, Quester Tangent continues to expand its presence in the North American passenger rail industry. “Securing this loan agreement with NYCT represents a significant step for our company,” commented Stephen McKay, CEO of Quester Tangent. “It serves as a vote of confidence in our expertise and products suite and showcases our commitment to building strong relationships with our customers,” he added.

It is anticipated that the train electronics equipment will be fully installed and operating by April 2015.
