Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority (CCRTA) Intermodal AVL
The Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority (CCRTA) AVL Program utilizes Mobile Data Terminals
installed on the CCRTA Fixed Route and Paratransit vehicles.
A computer program has been created that connects to the CCRTA Fleet Operations software and
obtains the AVL of the vehicles, which is then presented to the user using the
mediums listed below. The Fixed Route vehicles are shown as red bus icons on the
mapping mediums. Paratransit vehicles are presented as blue bus icons. The PDA display
can be displayed on any mobile device capable of rendering an ASP.Net active server page
and can be read using text to speech programs to persons with visual disabilities.
CCRTA services the entire Cape Cod Region of Southeastern Massachusetts.

MetroWest Regional Transit Authority (MWRTA) (Boston, MA) Mobility Manager
The MetroWest Regional Transit Authority (MWRTA) AVL Program utilizes two
different device types to deliver the location of its both Paratransit and Fixed
Route vehicles. For the Fixed Route Fleet, MWRTA utilized the GeoGraphics Lab' cell
phone AVL device, using Motorolla i355 cell phones to deliver AVL information
directly to the GeoGraphics Lab. The Fixed Route Service vehicles appear as red
icons on the mapping interfaces. For MWRTA's Paratransit Fleet, they operate
two services, the Dial a Ride service, servicing the towns of Ashland, Marlborough, Southborough, and Wayland, and
the MetroWest Ride, servicing the towns of Natick and Framingham. The Dial a
Ride service utilizes the same cell phone program as the Fixed Route Fleet and
appear as blue bus icons on the mapping interfaces. The MetroWest Ride Fleet
utilizes the same Mobile Data Terminal technology that CCRTA uses, and appears
as yellow icons on the mapping interface. The PDA display can be displayed on any mobile device capable
of rendering an ASP.Net active server page and can be read using text to speech
programs to persons with visual disabilities.
MWRTA services member communities located in the Metro West Region of Massachusetts, just west of Boston.
