CBTC – Communication Based Train Control

CBTC is a signaling system which enables trains to detect their own position and which uses two-way radio communication between onboard and wayside equipment. In addition it reduces wayside signaling equipment (e.g. signals, etc.) and allows high-density operation by utilising moving block technology, up to GoA4 operation including power-saving options.
