  It was available on 32 bus routes when Metro officials decided this month to put it on hold for as long as 18 months. The improvements should make it a better service. Metros NextBus system uses a computer system to track its buses and anticipate their arrival at each stop.

The system was providing correct arrival times 80 percent of the time, well below Metros goal of giving riders correct arrival estimates at a 95 percent rate." Metro rolled out the program last year. It is a good idea, andI hope they are able to put something together that will provide this service to our bus riders. I found it very frustrating," said Chris Zimmerman, who represents Arlington County on Metros board and is a frequent bus rider. Updated timetables are available on Metros Web site, and the information is also posted on electronic signs at major bus stops. "We were not happy with an 80 percent accuracy rate.

Customers liked having the system and many riders used the service to find out when the next bus would be coming," Taubenkibel said.Metro spokesman Steven Taubenkibel said pausing the program would give the transit system time to upgrade the Global Positioning System software, which should improve the accuracy of the bus-arrival times passengers receive. "It did not provide the correct .

Metro will put the brakes on a program that allows passengers to find out when a bus will arrive at their stop to repair glitches that gave riders bad information, system officials said Wednesday.Passengers waiting at a stop can call a phone number and receive schedule breakpads information. System officials announced in March they hoped to have the program available on all of Metros 340 bus routes by the end of the year. The reliability has to be higher

 We hit the brakes too hard to avoid an accident | Ecrit le 18-07-2017 03h29Alerter l'administrateur Recommander  un ami Lien de l'article 
   Roughly 100 Prince Georges County bus drivers went on strike early Monday, halting morning commutes for thousands of riders. The contracted drivers, all employed by Veolia Transportation, say they want more job security, better health insurance, higher wages and lunch breaks. The key issue for us is job security because we are being so mistreated by them, said Kathleen LaFortune, who has worked for Veolia for the last year. We are just tired. Veolia officials...

So Obama is stopping Democratic momentum, and he knows it.

  C. The lights are intended to catch pedestrians eyes and alert them to the buss presence. Metro plans to purchase devices that automatically notify bus operators of problems with their vehicles brakes and buy strobe lights for buses. 18.

That is on top of at least 15 similar cases found by an Associated Press review of the data on Wednesday. When AP went back to Toyota to ask specifically about brake information, Toyota responded that its EDRs do, in fact, record "data on the brake's position and the antilock brake system. By contrast, most other automakers routinely allow much more open access to information from their event data recorders, commonly known as EDRs. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said Toyota's EDR data...

When the car was holed up for 10 months with a shop that had agreed to work on it but hadn't touched it, Jennings pulled the vehicle and found another mechanic willing to do it. It was Al Prueitt & Sons in Glen Rock, Pa. The problem was that his car was an original numbers-matching vehicle, and trying to...

  If airline companies are to remain profitable and in business, passenger fares must reflect such costs." Let's put this in perspective. Yet how many of us bother to inspect our car's brake lines before we start the engine and head off to work? Doing so would be safer than simply assuming that the lines were intact. Because of higher fares, some families will opt to drive to their destination. Witnessing a highway fatality, few would attribute it to FAA...

  The contact of the pad's friction material on the rotors converts kinetic energy into heat and slows the vehicle.Getting rid of an annoying brake squeal and other brake noise is like trying to cure a bad case of herpes, which is in fact caused by a combination of factors that sometimes add up to create noise.

  And if we think about the people whom we so find spending time with very enjoyable, these are people we find it very easy to get along with. These rotors have slots to help take away the heat. Both of these are critical qualities for a good braking performance. The more traditional ones are drilled rotors which have holes to take away the heat. For example the car's controls are no longer Brake Disk as fluid and responsive as...

  . When tyres were invented, the wooden block system wasn't good enough to stop them at the higher speeds they could achieve, which meant that a new braking system had to be invented. Disc brakes, due to their lighter weight and better performance, are replacing drum types on the rear wheels. Up until then, vehicles had wooden wheels that were stopped by large wooden blocks, lowered into position by the driver using a simple lever system.In fact, cars originally...
