MISC | Platform Screen Doors

Cities With Platform Screen Doors
- Are platform screen doors in use in your city's rail system? If so, where? Who manufactures them? If not, why?

No, not in Toronto because we don't have enough funding for improvements to the system.

Thats just scary. What if a train stops in the tunnell or a fire breaks loose? I dont like such stations at all. They look futuristic and nice, but safe, nono..

Michal

Platform screen doors can easily be opened manually in an emergency from either side.

EDIT: ^... as far as I know.

Copenhagen has platform doors. The Turin metro will have them, too.
All VAL systems have them.

Copenhagen uses screen doors at platforms throughout its metro network (M-trains only).
