Teltronic, part of the Sepura Group, has been selected by Acabús, the bus network of Acapulco in Mexico, to deliver a TETRA digital communications system for BRT, a project that will see the construction of a bus-only highway through the centre of the city.
Designed to be used exclusively by rapid transit articulated buses, the 16km corridor will cut through the heart of the metropolitan area and, together with the redesign of feeder roads carrying private vehicles, will help to reduce journey times along main routes.
Teltronic will deliver a TETRA system composed of its Nebula infrastructure, handheld terminals and desktop units. In addition, on-board equipment will be integrated with a traffic regulation and control application (AVLS) provided by Mexican company Teknei, allowing voice communication with drivers as well as train-to-ground data messages for traffic regulation and remote control of vehicles.
“We are delighted to contribute to this pioneering project, which promises significant improvements for the people of Acapulco,” said César Roig Bermúdez de Castro, Country Manager Mexico & Central America.
“Our new digital TETRA system – together with the modernisation of the vehicle fleet – will vastly reduce journey times within the city centre, cementing our world-leading position in professional transport communications solutions and making a vital contribution to the safe transportation of thousands of passengers."
