Communications Based Train Control (CBTC)
Metropolitan Transit Authority
Siemens CBTC technology has been installed on the New York Canarsie L subway line, which was built more than a century ago. This technology automates operations so more trains can be added to the system — reducing passengers’ wait times at the station platform. Siemens was also awarded a $156 million contract by MTA to install CBTC on the Queens Boulevard Line, one of the busiest subway lines on the New York City Transit system.
One Penn Plaza serves as the U.S. headquarters for Siemens Mobility, Inc., which specializes in efficient and integrated transportation by rail and road. In addition to corporate administrative functions, the office also services ongoing projects for numerous transportation agencies around greater New York and houses R&D and engineering for automation and digitalization technologies like CBTC and PTC.
