    With what I see in all the rail yards in Chicago its going to be tough keeping guys out of the dedicated lanes if this thing takes off.... The English with a lot of drivers that are in the rails daily is lacking

    my company is pushing for everybody to start using the apps since it cuts phone conversation and waiting for billing I already have all the apps and going to start using it as my main method. also if you start processing while waiting to ingate that also saves you time, and if your dispatch is not lazy they can use the ns app to send you work directly to your device!

    That is why I said there should be some major penalty.

    Warning on first time through then:
    something like one week ban from yard for second time!

    Signs don't do anything. Examples:
    Speed Limit
    Don't Text While Driving
    Don't drink and drive
    Slower traffic keep right

    BOBTAIL ONLY LANE!!!!

    My point was, How many times have you seen trailers or containers in those lanes?

    Signs don't work.

    I got to use the app at NS Landers Chicago for the first time. Wow, that was a fast check out. I entered the QR code instead of my driver ID at the kiosk, the screen blinked a few times, asked me if I wanted a printout (which I said No) and I was out of there. I was out of there faster than the three trucks that were already at other kiosks when I pulled up.

    Note: ths app only works with the rails that have kiosks. It won't work at 47th st or Calumet, but you can still use the lot locator, assuming they are up to speed on the locations.
     
    Pmracing and HalpinUout Thank this.
