GTABS Awarded Key FRA Compliance Contract by Brightline High Speed Rail Project, Florida

ATLANTA, Ga – September 13, 2021 – Brightline has awarded GTABS, Inc. the contract to
provide critical point location testing for the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA)
compliance and documentation validation. The project encompasses approximately 230
locations along Phase 1 of the “All Aboard Florida” project spanning from Miami to West
Palm Beach – along the Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway line.

GTABS is responsible for gathering vital testing data from multiple locations, including
control points, intermediates, crossings and electric locks. The firm will subsequently
analyze the data to verify that each location meets FRA compliance. GTABS will then
conclusively perform the necessary tests and provide documentation required to bring
each location into compliance.

“While it is a major undertaking, GTABS is more than equipped to get it done, as we have
already begun this 5-month project and have enjoyed overwhelming initial success,” says
company CEO W. Jerome Hall.

GTABS shares the FRA’s priority regarding safety. Therefore, all activities have been and
will continue to be conducted with personal safety and the safety of accompanying
personnel in mind.
