MTA's New Platform Controller Program Aims to Reduce "Dwell Time"

Dwell Time is the time a subway train is not moving in a subway station as passengers unload and load onto the cars. While the MTA strives to keep this under 45 seconds, recent year's increaes in traffic have boosted it to over 1 minute on some lines, leading to delays and other problems.
