Together with the metros of Copenhagen (Metroselskabet, MS), New York City Transit, Helsinki Metro and Stockholm (Public transport administration), Prover has founded the CBTC user’s group to share experiences and best practices in the area of Communication-Based Train Control systems (CBTC).
A common interest in the CBTC User Group is the strategy for migration of existing systems to CBTC, to reduce costs for system development and safety assessments, by enabling more automation and increasing competition. It becomes a means for the infrastructure managers to gain further control of their systems.
There will be quarterly meetings focusing on different relevant topics, with presentations from the members as well as from external experts.
The group enables and catalysts ongoing discussions and knowledge sharing between the metro’s given the relationships and network that gets established.
