Along with the implementation of a new Transportation Management Center (TMC), many of the existing communication systems in the current Control Center and existing Metro subway are being upgraded or replaced. The SFMTA Metro Subway includes nine underground passenger stations. TSE is responsible for design deliverables for the replacement systems which include: communications systems, construction management/support services. In addition, TSE prepared an inventory of existing systems and a Conceptual Engineering Report (CER) which emphasized minimal disruption to current operations. The CER was reviewed and signed off by the various Operations and Maintenance Departments as well as SFMTA Management to indicate concurrence with design concepts and scope.
