Platform Doors at CTA Rapid Transit Stations

Protective platform doors on rapid transit stations

Passenger Safety Measure Addressed by UTC Director Dr. P.S. Sriraj

Installation of protective doors on Chicago Transit Authority rapid transit stations as a way to protect passengers was the focus of a CBS Channel 2 Chicago report March 4 that included commentary from P.S. Sriraj, director of the Urban Transportation Center at UIC.

In the segment that aired as part of a "Morning Insiders" segment, Dr. Sriraj noted the potential safety benefits, but questioned the overall cost to add protective doors across the CTA train system. New York is planning to launch a protective platform door pilot program this year.

The report was filed by Tim McNicholas.
