State-of-the-art technology will enhance "real-time" passenger information

On January 28, the Broward County Commission voted to move forward with implementation of a Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) and Automatic Vehicle Locator (AVL) system for Broward County Transit (BCT).

The new CAD/AVL system will allow operations dispatchers to better manage fixed-route and community buses and the planned “WAVE” modern streetcar system. It will also provide ”real-time” bus arrival and departure information through passenger advisory signs, websites, text messaging and mobile phone applications.
