Communications and Information System

Communications and Information System is a communication system used by surface vehicles by the Toronto Transit Commission. The system consists of a box with a phone and key pad next to the driver of the TTC vehicle. A transmitter is located on the top of the vehicle, near the rear of the vehicle.

First piloted in the 1970s, the system was implemented in 1991 and now full deployed on all TTC surface vehicles.
