LRTA taps train simulator to tutor train drivers

/ 09:34 AM May 17, 2018

The Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) has launched the first-ever train simulator in the country in a bid to improve its service through a more rigorous training method for train operators, Radyo Inquirer reported on Thursday.

The report said the program simulates the entire LRT Line 2 (LRT-2) landscape, copying all the controls of driver’s cockpit along with a realistic view from inside the cab.

The two simulators, which were purchased from LANDER Simulations and Training Solutions for P74.7 million, is located at LRT-2’s office at the Recto Terminal Station.

LRTA Administrator Reynaldo Berroya said the simulators were considered as the safer and cheaper option to teach drivers of the proper way to operate, turn, and troubleshoot the train.

According to the LRTA, the simulation program would also allow drivers to experience the 25 most common problems of LRT-2 cabs and of the whole system, as well as generate reports about the performance of a train operator.  with reports from Radyo Inquirer/ Rhommel Balasbas           /kga
