Boca Raton, Florida 2/7/2024 – ETA Transit Systems is thrilled to announce that it has been awarded a contract by the Bloomington Public Transportation Corporation (BPTC) for a comprehensive CAD/AVL system replacement project. This significant partnership marks a pivotal moment in the advancement of public transportation technology, bringing forth innovation and improved services for the Bloomington community that utilizes Bloomington Transit. ETA Transit Systems is proud to highlight the following key components of this transformative project:

A cutting-Edge CAD/AVL System

Bloomington Transit will undergo a major transformation by replacing its outdated CAD/AVL system with ETA Transit Systems’ cutting-edge, web-accessible platform. This state-of-the-art system promises to revolutionize fleet management and tracking, elevating operational efficiency and passenger satisfaction.

Seamless Integration

Our advanced CAD/AVL system will seamlessly integrate with Bloomington Transit’s existing onboard equipment, ensuring a smooth transition and minimal disruption to daily operations. This integration will enhance real-time data collection and reporting capabilities.

Elevating Passenger Safety

Safety is paramount, and the addition of the Covert Emergency Alarm feature underscores our commitment to passenger security, providing an added layer of protection for both riders and operators.

Automatic Voice Announcements (AVA)

Passengers can anticipate an improved travel experience with Automatic Voice Announcements (AVA), offering clear and timely information about stops and essential updates during their journeys.

APC Integration (APC)

The integration of existing Automatic Passenger Counting (APC) sensors with the SPOT system will empower BPTC to collect precise ridership data, facilitating route optimization and resource allocation.

GTFS-RT Compatibility

ETA Transit Systems’ CAD/AVL system fully supports the General Transit Feed Specification – Realtime (GTFS-RT), ensuring passengers have access to real-time information on routes, schedules, and service disruptions.

Streamlined Access

Simplifying the passenger experience, our system will offer a single sign-on solution, streamlining access to digital signage and critical transit information for riders. Passengers will be utilizing the SPOT app to track buses and see bus stops and schedules in real time.

Joshua Adler, Project Manager at ETA Transit Systems, shared his insights on the project’s success, stating, “Our dedicated team’s expertise and commitment to excellence allowed us to complete installation on all 38 buses within an impressive four-week timeframe. This achievement showcases our unwavering dedication to delivering exceptional results to our clients.”

John Connell, General Manager at BPTC, states, “This contract underscores BPTC’s dedication to delivering high-quality, dependable, and secure public transportation services to the Bloomington community. The new CAD/AVL system represents a significant stride in enhancing passenger experiences and operational efficiency and is the first of many technology upgrades as the transit system implements the TransformBT Strategic Plan. We are looking forward to using the data from the ETA Transit Systems to make critical decisions and guide the future of transit in the region.”
