About FASTRACK

The FASTRACK maintenance program completely suspends train service over a segment of a subway line, to give our workers uninterrupted access to tracks, signals, cables, lighting, third rail components, and platform edges. For the first time, the FASTRACK program will expand outside of Manhattan to address critical system infrastructure in other boroughs. Also new for 2013 are Weekend FASTRACK service changes.

FASTRACK has allowed crews to work more productively, achieving efficiencies valued at $16.7 million in 2012. An additional benefit of the FASTRACK project environment is a significantly lower accident rate experienced by participating employees. During FASTRACK 2012, the Lost Time Accident rate per 100 Employees dropped to 1.38/year versus a rate of 2.42/year during all other operations.

During a FASTRACK shutdown, our employees inspect hundreds of signals and switches, repair and replace track rails and cross ties, clean track floors, perform elevator and escalator repair work, repair water damage, clear drains, and clean stations. We also clear the track-bed of a significant amount of debris. We repaint areas untouched in years because they are not reachable during normal train operation. We clean lighting fixtures, change bulbs, and repair platform edges. We also perform high-intensity station cleaning, providing a visible improvement to the station environment and your commute.

Finally, FASTRACK has also had an impact on the reliability of service; delays have been reduced by 4.4% in areas where FASTRACK work has been performed.
