Ansaldo STS was awarded a $338 million contract from Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to furnish a complete positive train control (PTC) system on their entire commuter rail network.

This project represents an additional stepping stone for ASTS in becoming a recognized rail technology system integrator in North America.

Ansaldo STS CEO, Stefano Siragusa, is ‘proud to work with MBTA on their new PTC system. We are confident that our world-renowned products and experienced technological capabilities will provide the utmost safety to their future system’.
