Radio Satellite Integrators, Inc., a provider of customized GPS-based vehicle tracking and mobile data solutions, has announced the completion of an Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) system for Red Rose Transit Authority of Lancaster County, PA.

Red Rose Transit Authority provides the public transportation for the 941 square mile area of Lancaster County and completes approximately 2.5 million fixed route and shared-ride trips annually. In order to improve public transportation services for nearly a half-million county residents, Red Rose Transit chose Radio Satellite Integrators (RSI) of Torrance, California to design, manufacture, and implement an end-to-end GPS based vehicle tracking system.

Combining GPS, Motorola two-way radios, and customized GIS mapping software, the RSI system allows Red Rose to know the exact location and status of each of their vehicles at any given time, past or present. Such information enables Red Rose to optimally operate, dispatch, and manage their resources to provide the best service possible to their customers. Additionally, all fixed-route vehicles are integrated to a schedule adherence system residing at the base station to insure smoothness of operation.
