A vehicle location system having a plurality of stationary wayside stations positioned at predetermined geographical locations. The passage of a vehicle near a station references the location of the vehicle at that point in time and automatically supplies the remote headquarters with information as to the whereabouts of all vehicles operating in the system. Efficient utilization of the communication link between the vehicle and the remote headquarters is enabled by transmitting only updated location information to headquarters. The system enables low power radio frequency signals to automatically communicate error free location information between the wayside station and the vehicle by repetitively transmitting identical digitally coded messages and inhibiting utilization of the information contained in such message until receipt in succession of two location messages identical in code format.
