      Notes: On this date in Detroit Transit History: DSR's TWO-WAY RADIO SERVICE BEGAN

      On Tuesday, February 6, 1940, the DSR launched the operation of its "Emergency Radio System." The first two-way radio system to be operated by a street railway operation. The Dispatcher's Office was located in downtown Detroit and kept communications with 22 mobile units.

      The city was divided into fifteen (15) Patrol Districts, with each assigned a Service Inspector. Each Inspector had an automobile that was equipped with a two-way radio unit. These cars were known back then as the "Green Hornets"
