As Americans return to work and school, there will be a rebound in transit ridership as more commuters realize that additional cars on the road will lead to more congestion and longer commutes.
Riders will be asking for safer, less congested and cleaner, public transit. In order to achieve this transit operators must look to both increasing capacity by adding vehicles while also increasing digital technologies that allow for vehicles to run with shorter headway, resulting in more throughput.
By rapidly leveraging digitalization in transportation investments, we can ensure maximum economic stimulus benefits in the short-term and safer, more resilient infrastructure in the long-term. Operational benefits include the ability to guarantee the reliability and availability of asset.
