FCC Modifies 220 MHz License to Facilitate PTC Implementation
Thursday, March 09, 2017 | Comments

The FCC modified 218 – 219 MHz service station license KIVD0007, licensed to PTC- 220, to facilitate positive train control (PTC) implementation by New Jersey Transit, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), and certain PTC-220 freight member railroads.

Congress has required all trains providing passenger service and freight trains operating on lines carrying toxic and poisonous-by-inhalation hazardous materials to implement interoperable PTC systems by Dec. 31, 2018.

The order allows NJ Transit, SEPTA and other railroads to deploy PTC in counties within their service areas. The full order of modification is here.
