Simulation-based training enhances initial bus operator training, periodic refresher training, and driver assessments allowing you to conduct practical real world training, in different mass transit scenarios and for different road and atmospheric conditions. Simulation based training with L-3 driving simulators reinforces positive decision making, situation and spatial awareness, and promotes mastery of core skills through training in a realistic, risk-free environment with repeatable scenarios. Our experts work directly with your local instructional teams to ensure the desired skills and safe driving behaviors transfer into observable daily habits.
TransitSim™ Bus Simulator
The TransitSim™ offers a flexible platform for training fixed route bus operators to learn basic skill development, situation awareness, decision-making, judgment training, and vehicle operations. Simulators enable trainers to supplement behind-the-wheel training to promote the safe and efficient operation of a standard fixed route transit bus.
DeliverySim™ Driving Simulator
The L-3 DeliverySim™ 6 is designed to help prepare transit operators with the knowledge, skills and attitude they need to successfully operate a paratransit or delivery vehicle. Simulation allows drivers to navigate rural, country roads and suburban or city streets; day and night conditions; inclement weather; and experience a wide range of common mechanical problems.
