- Rail traffic controller
Rail traffic controller (RTC) is a person or group who are responsible for the safe and efficient operation of the railway within an assigned operating territory. RTCs are also responsible for ensuring train delays are minimized in their operating territory through the application of effective planning, scheduling, and queuing techniques. The RTC is also responsible for cost effective movement of trains and other on-track railroad equipment to optimize physical (trains) and human resource (crews) assets. RTCs are similar to dispatchers in that they use
