Florida transit equips fleet with ITS

The Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX) has equipped its 290 fixed-route buses and 10 supervisor cars with Mentor Streets Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) technology from Mentor Engineering to improve on-time fleet performance and meet the growing need for public transportation.

 

The Mentor Streets ITS solution allows LYNX to track buses in real-time on color-coded, highly customizable maps. This capability enables customer service staff to provide instant and accurate information on bus locations.

 

Building on their AVL acquisition, LYNX will soon be equipping their fleet with the Streets CAD module, as well as Mentor Ranger rugged in-vehicle computers to expand and enhance Mentor Streets' functionality in the field and office.
