CASE STUDY: The first ever mobile bus lane enforcement solution in New York launched by Siemens Mobility

Keeping bus lanes clear is a vital requirement.  The Automatic Bus Lane Enforcement (ABLE) solution from Siemens Mobility captures real-time bus lane violations and collects multiple pieces of evidence to ensure that vehicles making permitted turns from bus lanes are not ticketed.  Providing a more efficient bus service is key to encourage current and prospective riders and potentially reduce their carbon footprint.
