Safety-pageThe Sliding Platform would preclude the possibility of a passenger falling between the train and station platform and thus prevent serious injuries. Train stations are crowded places with people scrambling in anxious and distracted states of mind.With the pressure of passengersequally intent on getting on or off, hazards grow causing trips and falls. Designed to move out from beneath the train doors an instant before the car doors open and to retract an instant after they close, the Sliding Platform would connect the train to the loading platform, providing a short but stable bridge between the two.
