Now it appears that DARTA, has decided to implement a new multi-site 700 MHz digitally trunked radio system. They have petitioned the FCC to grant them a license to operate this new four-site network. This should be really interesting once it goes online.

were using there fiber optic lines to link the overlay instead of T1's and in return they get to use the system

Its DART, not DARTA LOL I know, your thinking TARTA (Toledo Area Rapid Transit).

The new system was supposed to be Open Sky, are they changing it now? I know a guy (HAM) who is a driver and he says they don't plan to mix Transit PD and LRT with the buses. the NEW buses coming next year have a much better radio compared to the buses used now (Many of the radio's don't work currently.)
