NY L Line Now Run by Computer - With a little help from its human friends

As of last week, the NY L line trains became fully controlled by a computerized signal system. The belief is that the NY Transit will be able to run them more often and closer together. The Brooklyn-Manhattan line will be utilized at first during off peak and overnight hours. A few conductors will oversee the $300 million Communications Based Train Control operation for a while. Although the MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority) had wanted to remove them, this apparently violated their contract. Makes you kind of wonder if you are the next to go.
