During the Transit Bus Summit 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia, Global Traffic Technologies will be talking with transit agencies about how they can help municipalities to move smarter and more efficiently by utilising intelligent ‘Opticom Analytics and flexible Priority Control as a Service’ solutions.
The Transit Bus Summit is an 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, and its industry-leading Opticom TSP allows buses to request an extended or truncated traffic light cycle, reducing travel time and maximising operational and on-time performance.
Efficient transit fleet management
At the 2018 Transit Bus Summit, GTT’s Craig Carroll and Mike Lemon will present information on its powerful Opticom Analytics application, which enables transit agencies to easily view critical information about their vehicles as they pass through an intersection, as well as powerful schedule-based analytics.
Transit managers can monitor key metrics such as on-time performance, Transit Signal Priority (TSP) utilisation, current route/trip information, and dwell time and travel time by vehicle or route. The result is a tool which can help agencies assess performance, reveal problem areas and make corrections to provide faster, more efficient transit operations.
Also under discussion will be GTT’s Priority Control as a Service option, which offers all the benefits of the Opticom system, providing transit vehicles with the ability to request priority at intersections—but without the worry of buying, installing and maintaining equipment. The subscription service is simplified and streamlined to benefit the agency and improve its operations.
