After months of anticipation and three bustling days on the show floor, it’s hard to believe APTA Expo 2017 is now in our rearview mirror. One of the largest public transportation expos in the world brought together 12,000 industry leaders to discover new innovations, explore trends and discuss pressing issues.
Hundreds of exhibitors showcased how their expertise and products will help shape the future of public transportation – from improving safety and efficiency to optimizing passenger comfort. We participated in many discussions around public transit’s role in driving economic growth and how advances in technology are changing the way people move within their communities.
The new demands being placed on transit authorities by riders was also a hot topic at APTA – with many believing millienials are responsible for the push towards interconnected technologies and a more comfortable ride. It’s evident that transit authorities are being forced to think beyond their ability to run buses and trains on schedule, as design came up time and time again during conversations with show attendees.
We’re excited to report our official launch of ScreeneX® at the APTA Expo received rave reviews. Representatives from transit authorities of all sizes said they could see how using ScreeneX® – a sleekly designed screen fully embedded inside the glass that transforms windows and partitions into real-time digital displays – would be a value-add for their riders.
At OSG, we understand that every decision operators make must consider the experience of the passenger and the safety of the crew. That’s why we’re working hard to bring solutions to market that tap an unmet need for transit authorities. To find out more how we can work together, please contact us.
We look forward to seeing you at InnoTrans 2018 in Berlin, Germany!
