This policy has resulted in ever-increasing pressure on heavy-rail rapid-transit systems to develop more cost-effective operating procedures.

Program study (NCTRP Rep "Conversion to One-Person Operation of Rapid-Transit Trains") addressed the issues related to one-person operation of multiple-unit rapid-transit trains and identified car side-door safety as an important issue associated with this type of operation.

The study suggested that certain work tasks can be.

On one-man operated passenger trains, the engineer must be able to see the whole train to make sure that all the doors are safe.
