Trapeze supplies MDTs to St. Louis Metro

Posted on August 24, 2012

St. Louis’ Bi-State Development Agency (Metro) selected to upgrade over 330 vehicles within Metro's fleet with Trapeze's Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) and IVLU's (Integrated Vehicle Logic Unit).

Designed for a “single log-on,” the MDT allows Metro drivers to not only log-on to the CAD AVL system, but also all integrated ancillary equipment onboard the vehicle. MDT's provides transit agencies like Metro with real-time interaction between the vehicle fleet and dispatch center for safer and more efficient operations. The onboard hardware also helps ensure control and accuracy with an onboard information and communication system.

The IVLU Metro selected is a modular on-board computer with the processing power required to control, monitor, record and oversee each vehicle in their mobile fleet. Accurate positioning and navigational tools can help Metro's new and existing drivers to navigate their routes any day, any time. The combination of GPS, dead reckoning and map matching makes the IVLU one of the most accurate positioning devices in the industry.

Metro owns and operates the St. Louis Metropolitan region's public transportation system, including bus, paratransit and light rail, and carries over 55 million passengers each year.
