Hi all, I am looking for paratransit frequencies in the greater Boston area and don't know what to search for. Some of the companies include:
Veterans Transportation
Joint Ventura
National Express (NEXT)
Greater Lynn Senior Services
TRACK

Any help would be appreciated.

The GLSS Frequencies I've found are as follows:
Channel 1 (also referred to as North Shore) - 471.8375
Channel 2 (generally a "tac" frequency if other channels are being used for an emergency) - 483.8375
Channel 3 (usually closer/in Boston) 484.5125.
Base and mobiles have different tones as of this year, so I just leave them CSQ.
National Express operates on the Comtronics 900mhz MotoTRBO system as Talkgroups 394 and 396. Up until late last year/early this year, they were on the Comtronics Boston analog system. I'm fairly sure that Veterans has the 2 scrambled talkgroups on the Metro Repeater Service LTR, but that's just an educated guess.

Hello,

The MBTA operates "The Ride" for paratransit. Different contractors provide "The Ride" services in different areas. Greater Lynn Senior Services (GLSS) is the contractor north of Boston and uses 471.8375 PL 74.4. These vehicles have "The Ride" livery with GLSS listed as the contractor. Veterans Transportion Services (VTS) is west of Boston and National Express Transit (NEXT) is south of Boston.

GLSS also has vehicles with GLSS livery for transportation in the Lynn area. They operate on 483.8375 PL 74.4.
