ETA Transit Systems completes ITS installation for N.Y. university

Posted on January 15, 2016

ETA Transit Systems completed its integration of its flagship SPOT® intelligent transit system (ITS) at New York’s Binghamton University.

The project, which provides real-time arrival updates on the university’s shuttle services, provides the school and its riders with enhanced reporting and vehicle tracking capabilities.

ETA has provided us with a critical update to our transit services,” said Dave Husch, director, university transportation. “The integration of automatic passenger counting with student identification cards will greatly enhance our ability to meet the current and future needs of our riders.”

“The needs of the university market can vary greatly from those at the municipal or corporate markets. Our SPOT system delivers the flexibility to meet these wide-ranging needs, and ETA’s dedication to delivering a pain-free, seamless integration affords our educational clients the ability to focus their efforts on their core customers — their students,” said Nicole Castonguay, CEO at ETA Transit.
