LYT and Traffic and Parking Control Co., Inc. (TAPCO) have agreed that TAPCO will integrate LYT solutions into public transportation agencies across the U.S.
“Our relationship with TAPCO expands LYT’s reach into markets across the US, particularly in the midwest where TAPCO has a strong presence,” said Timothy Menard, founder/CEO of LYT. “Together LYT and TAPCO are empowering cities everywhere to evolve into smart cities through more intelligent transit and emergency response technologies to better serve drivers, public transportation riders, and emergency responders to get to their destinations faster and more safely.”
TAPCO is representing LYT.emergency next-generation Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP) and LYT.transit next-generation Transit Signal Priority (TSP) to move emergency and transit vehicles through congested intersections, according to LYT's news release.
“Partnering with LYT is an important strategic move for TAPCO and will directly bolster our growing Next Generation Traffic solutions business,” said Eric Stangel, TAPCO managing director. “We’re thrilled to be bringing LYT’s next-generation smart emergency and transit technology solutions to increase the safety of our communities and help alleviate congestion in heavy traffic zones.”
LYT’s EVP and TSP solutions produce a green light for every transit or emergency vehicle. These solutions enable transit vehicles to speak directly to networked traffic signals in cities through the LYT cloud platform.
