Increasing Throughput for Mass Transit Applications by Using CBTC Systems

This paper describes how the features of Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) systems with Moving Block (MB) capability make them uniquely suited for overlay on existing Mass Transit or Metro systems and this permits a passenger (line) capacity increase in these systems. This paper defines and describes the features of modern CBTC Moving Block systems such as the Bombardier* CITYFLO* 650 product line that can be overlaid on existing metro systems in order to improve passenger throughput.
