MBTA and the Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Company today announced the launch of an updated “Rail Radio” service. “Rail Radio” provides real-time information about the status of approaching trains on car radios. It is now integrated with commuter rail’s Passenger Train Information System, a computerized system that links real-time information from approaching trains to LED monitors at stations.
“The integration of Rail Radio and PTIS delivers real-time information directly from approaching trains to customers’ cars,” said MBTA General Manager Richard Davey. “This service gives commuter rail customers more accurate information about when their train will arrive.”
The low wattage AM radio service is currently available at more than 80 MBTA commuter rail stations with over 50 parking spaces in Eastern Massachusetts. Customers should check LED monitors at their local stations for the “Rail Radio” frequency in their area.
