Call Sign/Asset Numbering Blocks

Thruway Authority call sign blocks have another layer in the form of Maintenance Sections within each zone. That information can be found on each zone's respective Wiki page.

New York State Police call signs have no relation to car number or unit number--each trooper is assigned a number by the Thruway Authority to use on their channels. For more information see: NYSP Troop T

There are anomalous Thruway units and prefixes that aren't mentioned here. The prefix "8" on Thruway Authority units seems to indicate reserve units, and it's unclear if it's used on air. Letter prefixes for Thruway Authority units is also common for buildings.
