ACS wins Milwaukee ITS contract

Posted on October 27, 2008

  

Affiliated Computer Services Inc. (ACS) announced a one-year $5 million contract to provide an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) for Milwaukee County Transit System's (MCTS) fleet of 650 buses.

The new system will enable the MCTS to conform to Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) recent 800 MHz radio rebanding program, while providing MCTS the flexibility to add new ITS features in the future so the city can continue to provide riders with the benefits of the latest technologies.

The new vehicle system solution also fully allows MCTS the full use of its long-standing investment in ACS' SmartTrack Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) and Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) system once MCTS' data radio channels are relocated to new 800 MHz frequencies.
