The main purpose of signaling is to provide safety and headway for rapid transit operations. This is accomplished by installing and interconnecting thousands of components of signal equipment into a coordinated system that, in all phases, stresses safety. There are three (3) main classifications of signals: automatic signals, approach signals and home signals. The purpose of the manual is to assist in standardizing the procedures involved in furnishing and installing of equipment to establish a signal system.
