The use of public transit in North America continues to expand as populations are increasingly choosing to live in urban areas or are simply opting out of purchasing vehicles. Transit agencies faced with increasing demand are responding by expanding existing service lines and investing in new starts. At the same time, agencies recognize the need for more efficient and less expensive ways to operate, increase ridership, and appeal to a new type of rider (i.e., millennials). With these changes in agency priorities and buying behavior comes the opportunity for industry to innovate and assist customers in achieving their objectives.
