You want to down load this manual that the City of Tempe gave me but didn't bother to give to you bus drivers. It is a public document anyone can get by making a request per A.R.S. 39-121 to the City of Tempe. The official name of the manual is ATC Tempe Operator Training Manual. It contains all kinds of information that is very useful. It is Microsoft Word document so you have to have Microsoft Word or some other product that allows you to read Word files installed and enabled to view it. If you don't have Microsoft Word you can save the document to you disk as a file and take it to somewhere where you have word. The file is fairly large. It is 2,587K bytes.
Pages 51 thru 56 contain some interesting information about the VMS system which controls the loud obnoxious female voice which announces the bus stops.
The City of Tempe sent it to me when I accused them of lying about their procedures.
