Florham Park-based Conduent Transportation has been awarded contracts with public transit agencies in California to provide on-time service for passengers.
Under two new contracts, the company will upgrade hardware and software for the management system on board hundreds of buses for the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System, North County Transit District and key portions of Orange County Transportation Authority’s system.
The agencies will use Conduent’s computer-aided dispatch/automatic vehicle location (CAD/AVL) solution to assist drivers with routing and keep buses on schedule, as well as provide real-time vehicle information on bus locations for passengers to make informed decisions. For dispatch personnel, the systems track the performance of the buses and enable effective communications with the fleet.
“These upgrades are critically important for our clients and their customers,” Conduent Transportation Interim Chief Executive Office John Peracchio said. “The newer systems will give the agencies more data and options for operations to run smoothly, leading to even more reliable and trusted service for riders.”
