The past several years have brought with them positive changes for SPX Genfare. Technology advancements are moving the transit industry into new territory as it relates to electronic, virtual and financial transactions.

In order to meet the changes in the market and the rapid technology developments that are taking place, Genfare is continuing to adapt and leverage the talent within its’ organization.
