QUEENS VILLAGE RADIO-DATA-LOCATOR SYSTEM
The purpose of the Radio-Data-Locator System is to provide communications and to optimize resource utilization. It helps improve bus schedule adherence and the level of bus service. In 1967, the New York City Transit Authority placed the world's largest civilian radio network in operation by the inauguration of a two-way bus radio voice network system. Automatic vehicle monitoring began in April 1979 with the Radio-Data-Locator system for Queens Village Depot, one of its twelve surface transit lines. Present features and capabilities are described and future aspects are considered.
