New York MTA installs ATO technology on subway’s Flushing Line [free access]

May 13, 2019

The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has implemented Automatic Train Operation (ATO) technology on the Flushing 7 Line of the New York Subway in Queens. The Flushing 7 line is the second rapid transit line where ATO technology has been implemented, after the L line.


ATO technology reduces the extent of manual operations, automates both braking and acceleration, and enables more reliable service.
