This integrates multiple vehicle information systems, including the Vehicle Logic Unit, Automated Vehicle Location, Wireless Local Network, Digital Vehicle Announcement System, Automated Passenger Counting, Transit Signal Priority, Fare Collection, Video Surveillance, Vehicle Health Monitoring, Computer-Aided Dispatch, Mobile Dispatch, Reporting System, Traveler Information, Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV), and Personal Interactive Information systems. Schedule planning scope preparations for early construction activities such as tunnel infrastructure work without interrupting revenue time and services.
