Transportation Communications Newsletter

Transportation Radio/TCN Fundraiser



For over 19 years the TCN has been bringing you free daily updates on transportation news. It’s one of the oldest transportation e-newsletters in the world! The TCN, however, isn’t the only source of transportation news I bring you. A few years ago I also created Transportation Radio to provide in-depth interviews via podcasts with a variety of transport leaders from around the world (checkout the latest one below). Like the TCN, it too is free. Free to you, though, doesn’t mean free to me. There are hosting and equipment costs, among others. Can you help support these transportation news sources? All you need to do is make a one-time contribution via PayPal or by sending a check to the address at the bottom of the newsletter. You can also make a recurring contribution via Patreon. Thank you!

Reno A&E Bicycle Differentiation System Provides Safe Passage Time through Intersections


The Model C-1101-B and Model C-1201-B inductive loop vehicle detectors offer increased processing that provides the capability of signature recognition enabling the vehicle detector to detect all vehicles with the added ability of differentiating bicycles from all other vehicles including differentiating bicycles from motor-scooters and motorcycles as well. Caltrans or NEMA type models allow traffic engineering professionals to detect and provide safe passage time for bicycles without compromising the intersection’s operating efficiency. To learn more about RAE’s Bicycle Differentiation System, contact RAE Sales Manager Matt Zinn at mattz@renoae.com.
