ETA Transit modernizes Wyo. fleet

Posted on June 9, 2015


ETA Transit Systems announced the completion of its contract to equip 19 Wyo.-based Cheyenne Transit Agency vehicles with the newest CAD/AVL and demand-response equipment and software.

The contract, awarded through public bid in 2014, charged ETA Transit and partners REI and Engraph Software, to outfit its fleet of 19 vehicles with computer aided dispatch and automated vehicle location (CAD/AVL) systems powered by ETA’s landmark SPOT™ technology. This upgrade included the creation of a public website to track Cheyenne’s six routes, offering riders real-time arrivals of upcoming buses.

The software implementation provided Cheyenne Transit with para-dispatch capabilities allowing the agency to achieve automated National Transportation Database-compliant reporting.

Next up in 2015 is an upgrade of the Cheyenne Transit fleet to include ADA-compliant on-board automatic announcements. A powerful add-on to its existing SPOT software, the ADA module provides Cheyenne the ability to automatically announce upcoming stops, and supports ad-hoc and GPS-based announcements.
