    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Anybody know what system York region transit or Viva is using???
I dug up some old (2006) info, so not sure how accurate it's going to be, but TAFL confirms the frequency mentioned, licenced to Fleetcom:

YRT has (still operational afaik) a 900 MHz LTR system with a single channel broadcased from Tangreen. The frequency is 936.575MHz and if you're trunking the system, the LCN is LCN01
Again, not sure how accurate this is now. If it turns out to be, please submit the system.

And a Google search just turned up this tidbit (from http://www.yrt.ca/en/aboutus/resources/2014_ASP_09_BusinessUnits.pdf page 183):

YRT/Viva has partnered with York Regional Police as one of the user groups for the new police radio system. The system offers expanded and more reliable radio communications throughout the Region, City of Toronto and within the new subway lines. The system will be implemented between Q3 2013 - Q3 2014 within the Enforcement and Security group. As the system is field tested and accepted it will be expanded to other working sections within transit.

I will next time I'm out there
I don't know about the buses but I saw YRT security with iden type radios with keypad, not sure about YRT/VIVA buses, The buses coming out of Brampton into the York U seem to be on the Brampton LTR system but not York I don't think.
