Chatham Area Transit selects Indra USA for dispatch technology
Indra says its Computer Aided Dispatch and Automatic Vehicle Location solutions will soon provide Chatham Area Transit (CAT) commuters with an enhanced transit experience with unprecedented efficiency and ridership safety.
Indra’s technology will allow CAT, Savannah, GA, to instantly determine a vehicle’s location, make real-time decisions and to optimize its fleet. CAT riders will be able to obtain real-time data including information about their next stops, transfers to other lines, unexpected incidents and estimated travel times.
CAT staff will also rely on the system’s fully integrated onboard video surveillance, allowing images from the bus to be viewed, transmitted and recorded in real time.
“Indra’s technical solution brings CAT to the forefront of intelligent transit systems; improving our ridership’s experience, increasing operational throughput and reducing costs through the implementation of their powerful back-office and fully integrated on-board equipment,” said Dr. Chadwick Reese, executive director of CAT.
David Fedor, Indra USA’s president and CEO said that this contract with CAT “represents an important milestone for Indra as we cross over the 100,000 mark of vehicles managed using Indra technology.”
Indra has operated in the United States since 1994 serving the defense, energy, financial services, tolling, fare collection and transit markets.
