Starting today, the L train is finally a robo train. The line will be fully controlled by a computerized signal system. The system will enable "the NYC Transit to run trains closer together, more frequently, and safer than the current antiquated signal system allows." Motormen will still be on the trains though just in case a problem arises. When a rider was asked by NY Daily News about it, he replied, "I have to be honest. I'm a little afraid." Are you afraid of your line becoming a robo train?
