Estimated Schedule

Cost Change

State Aid to fund passenger and workforce software.

Justification

The CAD/AVL system has reached the end of its useful life, and the system is experiencing critical operational issues such as gaps when no information is available to dispatch and on field operations. The upgrade from radio to cellular technology will eliminate dead zones and allow vehicle locations to be updated every 10 seconds rather than the current three minutes. The CAD/AVL is a crucial driver to continue with the Real Time sign program both in LED Ride On/WMATA stop signs and multimodal signs in buildings around the county.

Fiscal Note
