DATA Transit Fixed-Route Vehicles
Fixed–route bus service is offered by DATA. These transit vehicles run on a set route and schedule.
DATA plans to have an automatic vehicle location (AVL) system which will provide dispatchers and supervisors with the capability of tracking the location of the entire fleet in real–time. Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) devices placed on each fixed–route, demand–response, supervisor and maintenance vehicle allow dispatchers to track any transit vehicle at any time.
