RTA logo GPS Train Tracking

Description

This project involves the replacement of the current GPS, which has exceeded its useful life. Metra will replace the GPS, on‐board announcement system, and signs on the entire fleet. Metra will also install automatic passenger counters and event recorders. The new system will maintain the necessary current functions, while potentially adding video surveillance, customer information displays, and an infotainment system.
