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.
GTT will talk about how technology can help reduce their operating costs while simultaneously improving service During the 2016 Transit Bus Summit in Dana Point, California (February 22-24), Global Traffic Technologies will be talking with transit agencies about how technology can help reduce their operating costs while simultaneously improving service, on-time performance and ridership. Best management of fleet operations 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. Vice President of Sales and Distribution for Eastern US and Canada Craig Carroll and Vice President of Strategic Sales Mike Lemon will represent GTT at the Summit, where they will discuss with transit agencies: How to keep up with demand without compromising service levels How to reduce operating costs while improving service How to improve on-time performance and ridership How to give time back to communities How to use technology to promote the benefits of public transit and the agency GTT helps cities meet the growing demand for fast, reliable, affordable transit solutions. OpticomT for public transit allows agencies to extend or truncate green cycle times at traffic signals for more accurate schedule adherence. In turn, transit vehicles - including buses, light rail trains and streetcars - are on the road less, which reduces fuel and fleet costs for more profitable operations.
