Transportation directors to receive insights into next-generation Smart City signal priority technologies and applications at Lake Las Vegas event
At the 2019 Transit Bus Summit in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada (February 11-13), Global Traffic Technologies will be talking with transit agency directors and decision makers about how their transportation systems can meet their full potential through the use of intelligent, smart priority control technologies and management.
The Transit Bus Summit is a free event aimed at transportation directors of public transit and university bus systems, and provides an opportunity for agencies and suppliers to share ideas and solutions on best management of fleet operations.
GTT is the trusted market leader in priority control solutions for smart cities, supporting transit agencies to increase ridership, enable better on-time performance and achieve reliable schedule adherence. GTT’s industry-leading Opticom TSP allows buses to request an extended or truncated traffic light cycle, reducing travel time and improving reliability and rider experience. With GTT’s unique capacity to offer sophisticated relative priority deployments, transit agencies can tailor their TSP system according to their operational needs, and take full advantage of the smartest buses ever.
At the 2019 Transit Bus Summit, GTT’s Craig Carroll and Mike Lemon will discuss the latest advances in smart transit technology and priority control, especially the growing popularity of software-based, centralized signal priority solutions. Carroll, a regional manager for the Eastern United States who specializes in transit solutions, including Washington D.C.’s Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). Lemon helped bring GTT’s pioneering Advanced Schedule Management solution to Bay Area transit agencies including San Francisco (SFMTA).
Transit leaders at the Transit Bus Summit will be able to learn from Lemon and Carroll’s experiences with these and other agencies and adapt GTT’s solutions to fit their individual agency’s needs.
“There’s a growing interest in leveraging existing technology when it comes to solving transportation problems,” Carroll said. “For years, cities have been building out communications infrastructure with fiber and WiFi networks. Connecting vehicles – including buses – to those networks allows communities to reap the benefits of priority control without long procurement and deployment times.”
However, not every community has the infrastructure for a centralized priority control system. Many agencies are looking for a “migration path” that takes them from their current state to where they want to be in the future, Lemon added.
“Our goal is to listen to everyone’s challenges and see if there are ways we can work together to come up with the right solution,” Lemon said.
