Ms. Deborah Chin (Debbie) is a 28 year public transit professional.  In August 2015, she was appointed the Executive Director for Positive Train Control (PTC) at the Long Island Rail Road. PTC is a federally mandated safety system that is being implemented to prevent train collisions and eliminate operator error.  She previously worked at New York City Transit (NYCT).  During her tenure at NYCT, she was instrumental in the deployment of many different computer-based systems, such as Communications Based Train Control (CBTC), Automatic Train Supervision (ATS), “countdown clocks”, and Help Points on station platforms.  Debbie holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Rochester, and a Master’s in Public Administration from CUNY Baruch College. She is a Professional Engineer in the State of New York, and has been a part of the WTS Mentoring Program for the past 4 years.  She resides in Yardley, Pennsylvania, and has three grown sons.  Debbie loves to spend time with her family, travel, eat out, quilt, go to Broadway shows, and binge watch her favorite TV series.
