PTC Implementation Status by Railroad
This graphic represents a summary of overall PTC implementation status, as reported in railroads' quarterly PTC progress report, and is not intended to show detailed implementation progress.
PTC Safety Plan ¥ Minus Legend Icon Railroad has not submitted PTCSP to FRA Plus Legend Icon Railroad has submitted PTCSP, but the plan is not yet certified. This may include plans that are currently under review, plans that are under revision, and plans that have received provisional certification. Provisional certification indicates that the plan is temporarily approved until full review is complete Check Legend Icon Railroad PTCSP has been submitted and certified
Spectrum ±
Minus Legend Icon Spectrum is not fully acquired and not fully available for use Plus Legend Icon Spectrum is acquired but not fully available for use Check Legend Icon Spectrum is fully acquired and available for use N/A E-ATC indicates the railroad is using an E-ATC system, which does not require spectrum. PTC-220 indicates that the railroad is leasing spectrum from PTC-220, LLC. CBTC indicates the railroad is using a CBTC system, which uses a different spectrum frequency
Interoperability *
This field represents the number of required tenant railroads that have achieved interoperability with the host railroad’s PTC system. In cases of tenant-only commuter railroads (ACEX, MACZ, NSCR, and VREX), this field represents the railroad’s interoperability status with each of its host railroads.
