    Thumbs up Agence Metropolitaine de Transport (AMT) in Montreal Improves Bus Operations w/ RFID


    Agence Metropolitaine de Transport (AMT) in Montreal Improves Bus Operations with Motorola RFID Solution


    AMT Teams Up with Motorola, Eminencia and Solotech International to Improve Customer Satisfaction and Expand Use of Public Transit
    November 13, 2007: 08:00 AM EST


    HOLTSVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Motorola, Inc. today announced that the Montreal Transit Authority (AMT) selected a Motorola RFID solution to track its bus fleet and help increase the use of its transit system. Together with Motorola authorized reseller, Eminencia, AMT has deployed Motorola radio frequency identification (RFID) readers, tags and antennas, as well as wireless LAN (WLAN) access points and client bridges. This unique integration of RFID and WLAN serves to seamlessly deliver AMT's bus riders with real-time arrival and departure information, reducing passenger confusion and making travel more convenient and comfortable even in inclement weather.

    AMT has been charged with encouraging the public to use buses rather than private vehicles to promote an environmentally-friendly lifestyle that results in less traffic congestion and vehicle pollution. The organization determined that it needed to better manage its system of buses in order to handle its current roster of 750,000 passengers and to encourage additional riders. As a result, AMT built a solution that provides terminal managers with detailed cumulative reports to improve the management of routes and personnel.

    "Even beyond convenience, this RFID-based system is a lifestyle enhancement for our customers as every minute of wait time during our region's harsh winters can be a challenge," said Claude Carette, vice president, Metropolitan Operations, AMT. "By implementing the RFID system, we are able to more accurately inform customers of the specific time and location of buses on large screens so that they can wait in the comfort of the terminal until the bus arrives. Additionally, real-time monitoring allows AMT terminal managers to quickly deploy additional drivers to keep bus routes on schedule, even when weather, road construction or a mechanical breakdown may otherwise create delays."

    "Businesses are seeing the value -- both from a lifestyle and organizational standpoint -- of real-time access to asset location information," said Joe White, vice president of business development, RFID division for Motorola's Enterprise Mobility Solutions. "AMT's deployment is a great example of how public agencies can leverage Motorola's complete portfolio of enterprise mobility solutions to quickly move information from one bus station to a city's entire network of hubs, creating a pleasurable travel experience for passengers."

    RFID technology specialists Eminencia worked with Solotech International, a Canadian company with extensive experience in multimedia design and integration, to develop an integrated system of large digital display screens mounted in bus terminals. The screens display information about bus arrival and departure times and the appropriate docks. This data is also presented to terminal managers who monitor and control the bus traffic. To gather the information, AMT uses an ultra high frequency (UHF) RFID-based solution consisting of RFID readers located at entrance and exit points at each depot and RFID tags on buses to detect the bus location throughout the terminal. The Motorola WLAN sends the collected data from the RFID readers to depots' system for analysis to generate information for the display screens.

    "Aside from improving on-time performance, the RFID system helped AMT modernize its tracking and communication of bus status across all terminals, enabling management to focus on future improvements and growth plans," said Pierre Malboeuf, president, Eminencia. "We recommended Motorola RFID technology because Motorola's products provide the highest levels of performance and read accuracy -- even under severe regional weather conditions that include temperatures reaching minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit."

    The system is currently operational at the Cartier and Montmorency bus terminals in Laval, Montreal. Overall, there are Motorola RFID Cargo Tags affixed to 380 buses and each terminal has an RFID network consisting of Motorola XR Series RFID readers, Motorola AN400 Area RFID antennas and a WLAN consisting of Motorola AP-5131 access points and a Motorola CB3000 client bridge.

    Representatives of the Montreal Transit Authority, Eminencia and Motorola will be presenting information about this solution at the RFID Journal Live! Canada 2007 event on November 27th in Toronto, Canada.

    Petit bémol, le train est pas vide, il a des passagers qui viennent de plus loin et qui utilisent la gare Rigaud.

    Ce que la ville de Rigaud conteste c'est la facture pour les 12 Rigaudais(?) qui utilisent vraiment le service.

    Bon, je ne savais pas que l'AMT pouvait savoir de quelle ville les utilisateurs proviennent. Quand on achète et recharge notre OPUS, c'est pas indiqué. C'est sûr qu'ils peuvent faire des stats.

    Non c'est la ville elle-même qui avance ce chiffre, c'est une petite ville et c'est pas trop difficile de compter ses moutons

    Train makes its last stop in Rigaud

    Bus service to begin on Friday Service that has been running since 1889 to make its last run from old Rigaud station

    BY ALYCIA AMBROZIAK, THE GAZETTE JUNE 30, 2010


    A more than century-old service will end today, when the train to Rigaud makes its last run.

    "The train has been running without interruption since 1889. But the last train to Rigaud will not leave commuters stranded," said Manon Charest, director general at the Conseil Intermunicipal de Transport La Presqu'Ile (CIT la Presqu'Ile), which provides bus service to Hudson, Vaudreuil-Dorion, Pincourt, Ile Perrot and Notre Dame de l'Ile Perrot, and beginning Friday, to Rigaud.

    The CIT la Presqu'Ile buses ferry passengers to the Vaudreuil train station, a hub that is served by 25 trains on weekdays.

    Beginning Friday, the CIT la Presqu'Ile will provide a new twice-daily weekday bus service taking passengers from Rigaud to the Vaudreuil train station.

    The bus service will leave Rigaud every weekday morning at 6:12 and 7:02 a.m. and stop at five stops along Highway 342, commonly known as Harwood Blvd., on the way to the Vaudreuil train station. Afternoons, the bus will leave the Vaudreuil station for Rigaud at 5:25 and 6:41 p.m.

    A similar CIT bus service is scheduled to begin in St. Lazare in September.

    Rigaud town manager Chantal Lemieux said the handful of residents who were commuting by train will be better off with the buses.

    "There will be more service available to our residents, as we only had one train departure in the morning and one arrival in the evening," Lemieux said Monday. "Now, we will have two departures in the morning and two at the end of the day."

    Train service to Rigaud, 60 kilo-metres west of downtown Montreal, was cancelled after the town of Rigaud announced it could not afford to pay about $300,000 annually -up from $160,000 -that the Agence metropolitaine de transport (AMT), Montreal's regional public transit authority, was demanding to keep the service alive.

    Hudson will be the new terminus for what was known as the Dorion/ Rigaud line, a service heavily used by West Island commuters.

    In an earlier interview, Lemieux said the town of Rigaud does not know what will happen to the train tracks in Rigaud.

    "There had been talk of making it into a bicycle path, but it is not our property," she said. "It belongs to CP Rail. And I don't think they'll be dismantling the tracks any time soon."

    Couldn't they just drive to Hudson and take it from there?
