COACH LINES INSTALL
June 8, 2008
New York Post
On June 8, 2008, the New York Post ran an article featuring the Saucon TDS system. The article, “‘BUS’TING TERROR – Coach Lines Install Anti-Hijacker Tech”, describes the Saucon TDS system as a preventative technology in the fight against terrorism. The article explains that private bus companies have received millions of dollars from the Department of Homeland Security to protect and secure the passengers on their buses.
The following is an excerpt from this article:
"A Pennsylvania manufacturer, Saucon TDS, makes the device. In an emergency, a bus driver can hit a panic button installed next to the steering wheel. That distress call is sent by satellite to the bus company and the command center at Saucon TDS. A GPS device attached to the bus computer system allows a dispatcher to pinpoint the location of the bus and identify its speed and direction. Protocol calls for the dispatcher to contact law enforcement and act under its supervision before taking action. Through the computer hookup, the dispatcher can slow the bus and block it from being restarted, allowing cops to catch up and intervene."
