At the monthly membership meeting in January several Operators voiced a couple of concerns over the Smart Bus MDT screens.
1. Operators were concerned that the brightness on the MDT screens is automatically adjusted. There should be a way for operators to manually adjust them to their personal optimum.
Well, it turns out that the MDTs DO have a brightness control; they can be adjusted by simply tapping the screen to either make them dimmer or brighter. Straightforward answer to a straightforward question.
2. The other concern was raised about privacy issues while driving smart buses. If you are not driving a designated Smart Bus route and you key in your payroll number and name they will remain on the screen.
The simple solution is to not log onto the MDT unless you are driving a designated Smart bus route.
Trusting this will help you in your concerns.
