INIT Innovations in Tranmporatation announced it will exhibit at the APTA TRANSform Conference & Expo in Orlando, Fla., on Nov. 8-10.
INIT will showcase solutions that help agencies meet their current and future operational challenges, including contactless fare payments, electric vehicle charging and operations, passenger counting, and crowd control and planning and optimizing tools.
Visitors to the booth can experience contactless fare payments through a real-time fare validator or experience user-friendly and accessible ticketing via the ticket vending machine inside the INIT booth.
Electric vehicle operations
In 2020, a cloud-based solution to charge and monitor 112 e-buses for a renewable energy fleet in Northern Europe was implemented. Learn more about this project and how to charge e-buses at the APTA Learning Zone session on Nov. 9 at 9:30 a.m.
Restoring passenger confidence
INIT’s 3-D passenger counting technologies are helping agencies restore passenger confidence in public transit again by providing accurate, real-time information on passenger loads. Stop by and take a walk through the portal (door) to see how it works.
INIT’s futuristic booth will host two “humanoids” who will engage visitors through selfies, dance performances and a neon ball game. INIT staff will encourage visitors to identify their operational challenges and help them explore solutions through technology demonstrations in the booth. Learn more about what’s happening by listening to INIT's podcast with Lenay Gore, senior director of meetings with APTA.
