The MTA Explains Their Antiquated Subway Control System and the Ongoing Upgrade to Communications-Based Train Control

In a recent video by the New York City Metro Transportation Authority, they explain their near century-old subway control system and also give the details of their ongoing upgrade to a Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) system.

Although the upgrade will cause delays and shutdowns, the MTA asks riders to be patient and promises that the new system will be safer and provide more trains per hour.
