Syncromatics showcases its transport breakthroughs at APTA Expo 2017
GMV’s ITS Company in North America, Syncromatics, took part as an exhibitor at this year’s International APTA EXPO, which took place from 9 to 11 October in Atlanta, Georgia.
Held every three years in conjunction with the American Public Transportation Association's (APTA) Annual Meeting, EXPO is public transit's premier showcase of technology, products and services.
Syncromatics showcased its innovative, state-of-the-art technologies to help transit agencies keep buses running on schedule, capture ridership and performance metrics, and provide visibility in bus operations.
Visitors were able to step inside a “bus” and experience what their transit experience could be like in the future.
Syncromatics demoed its complete, integrated solution, with the Android-based OpenMDT at the heart. Guests got the chance to see the OpenMDT in action, along with peripherals such as Syncromatics’s best-in-class annunciator system.
Syncromatics also introduced its new infotainment solution and exhibited, for the first time ever, its real-time onboard arrival display. In addition to upcoming stops a particular bus will make, this onboard display leverages third party APIs and real-time data to show connection information and availability of multi-modal transport solutions such as bike share. Passengers onboard a bus can see very clearly if they wil make their connecting bus or train or how many bikes are available as they approach the stop. At APTA EXPO, Syncromatics was proud to display live data for Atlanta’s MARTA Rail system.
In addition to its full suite of fixed-route products, Syncromatics prominently showcased its Easy Rides paratransit and demand-response solution, account-based fare payments, and real-time solar LED signage for bus stops and transit centers, making it clear that Syncromatics is a market leader in fully-integrated systems, covering all of a transit agency’s needs.
Upon the conclusion of a successful EXPO, Syncromatics CEO Ian Sephton looked ahead to APTA EXPO in Anaheim in 2020, “We are excited to host friends and customers from around the world in Southern California for the next APTA EXPO. We’ve already begun planning and look forward to sharing the exciting future innovations we have in store.”
