Real-time Information Solution

The Riding Public’s expectations have increased dramatically over the past decade. This expectation has encouraged agencies to invest in cleaner, faster, and more reliable transportation. Encompassed in the more reliable transportation expectation, lies the intrinsic need for reliable information being passed from the agency—to the riding public. Today, with Avails Central ITS Solution, a great deal of information is already being collected concerning the real-time operational status of a transit property’s fleet. Avail is continuing to provide enhanced methods to provide this information to the riding public, to “Enhance the Riders Experience.” Providing this valuable real-time information within easy to use Medias like the Web, Wayside signs, In-vehicle displays, and mobile devices, will encourage the riding public to abandon their cars and utilize public transit.
