Automatic Voice Annunciation (AVA)

Automatic Voice Annunciation (AVA) , part of Phase II and soon to be implemented, is designed to provide "Next Bus Stop" announcements for all Metro Bus passengers.

This capability is fully ADA-compliant and utilizes both audio (public address system) and visual (electronic message sign) technologies to communicate information to Metro bus riders.

The AVA system uses information from the AVL system and the AVA database to determine the appropriate wording and timing of both audio and visual announcements.
