Description

AVL–equipped paratransit vehicles that support communications to/from transit operations center and security communications. Vehicles can accept Laketran Smart Card payment from travelers.

LakeTran plans to transition to an electronic pre–payment via the web and customer service center, which will remove the need for paratransit vehicle fare boxes, and alllow them to move to an account based system where passengers are required to pay prior to booking their trip.
