The Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Transit project is presenting opportunities and challenges with respect to train control. The trains will operate within different controlling environments. The movement of trains in signaled territory will be under an automatic train protection system (ATP). Multiple methods of route initiation are active, on line, simultaneously. The normal mode of operation will be the selection of routes automatically by the passage of a train. Route selection can be initiated by the train operator in addition to the automatic operation and the Office Control Cent (OCC) operation. The maximum speed allowed is governed by the carborne equipment although the train operator will move by line of sight.
