Opticom TSP provides priority to buses at intersections for improvements in operational efficiency and schedule adherence
Global Traffic Technologies, LLC (GTT) has contracted with the Florida Department of Transportation for the expansion of its latest-generation GPS-equipped Opticom™ Transit Signal Priority system, on the I4 corridor project. An additional 30 transit vehicles will be equipped with TSP transmitters, allowing them to request green light priority at intersections and helping to ensure on-time arrival for transit passengers.
The Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority serves the greater Orlando area, as well as Orange, Seminole, and Osceola counties through transit agencies such as LYNX.
The Opticom TSP system allows public transportation agencies to extend or truncate green cycle times at traffic signals for more accurate schedule adherence and/or get riders to their destinations faster. In turn, transit vehicles are on the road less, which can significantly reduce fuel and other fleet operations costs.
GTT’s President Doug Roberts said, “We’re delighted to continue helping to expand the Central Florida TSP system, and helping to provide riders with even more efficient operations. We look forward to our continued partnership with FDOT.”
