The London Transit Commission (LTC) expects it to take as long as October before driver barriers are completely installed in its fleet and a rear door boarding policy has been extended until at least the end of July.

A decision to order barriers was approved by the LTC back in late April, but at a meeting Wednesday night, general manager Kelly Paleczny outlined that barriers are expected to begin arriving in batches of 35 starting the week of July 10.

At that rate, it’s anticipated that the entire order of 170 would be delivered by the week of August 15.

“The barriers that we’re putting in place are not the plastic barriers that some systems have gone to, which is a temporary solution.”

Paleczny continued, “we’re actually installing a full metal and glass barrier that’s very similar to what it would be like if you put a car door around the operator’s seat.”
