Preteckt has signed an agreement with the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) to help maintain the region’s bus fleet, according to PSTA's news release.
Preteckt’s AI-powered predictive maintenance can catch problems before they cause bus breakdowns and it enables technicians with the insights needed to make early repairs.
“PSTA’s Maintenance department experienced an increase in vehicle up-time and reliability with the vehicles involved in the pilot program,” said Joe Cheney, deputy director of Fleet Operations for PSTA. “By identifying problems before they cause performance issues, we were able to correct them without negative operational impact. For this reason, Preteckt’s technology has been rolled out to more than 50% of the bus fleet with the expectation to continue further implementation in the future.”
The agreement will see Preteckt’s technology used by PSTA’s bus maintenance team after a pilot project.
“We are thrilled that the PSTA recognized the benefits of having Preteckt’s AI-powered predictive maintenance in its bus fleet and we are excited about a potential further expansion,” said Krish Inbarajan, CEO of Preteckt. “PSTA is a leader in transit for adopting innovation that ensures its riders get where they need to go on time and safely, and significantly helps its maintenance employees look after its fleet. We are delighted to have them be the first agency in Florida to sign a commercial contract with Preteckt.”
This commercial agreement is part of Preteckt’s expansion into transit authorities across North America. Preteckt now supports several commercial contracts and numerous pilots across North America.
Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA) was the first transit agency to implement this technology after seeing it being used with heavy-duty trucks.
Preteckt’s AI was most recently adopted by New York City Transit’s Bus Maintenance.
