FASTRACK work typically includes repairs and maintenance of tracks, ties and running rails; third-rail maintenance; signal and switch maintenance; infrastructure repairs and replacements; electronic maintenance, and high-intensity station environment cleanings or escalator/elevator repairs. Shutting down segments of a subway line for several hours over consecutive nights or days allow our employees to perform critical maintenance jobs as efficiently as possible in our 24/7 system. Since the FASTRACK program began in 2012, we have seen a reduction in train delays and in the number of track fires, and found cost efficiencies and a lower accident rate for our employees.
FASTRACK has been designed around the careful determination that there is adequate alternate means of transportation, including enhanced services along some bus lines during work periods. Alternative transportation options will be detailed in announcements and posters on trains, in stations and on selected buses; brochures will be available in both English and Spanish.
