New signaling technology-
The new signaling technology known as Communication Based Train Control (CBTC), is being used on the Pink Lines.
CBTC is a rail signaling system that makes use of the telecommunications between the train and track equipment for the traffic management and infrastructure control.
The main objective of CBTC is to increase capacity by reducing the time interval (headway) between trains.
