TRC, Swiftly Partner to Improve On-Time Transit Connections

The Routing Company (TRC) and Swiftly have launched a joint approach that improves on-time transit connections. 

The partnership leverages the real-time transit feed specification or “GTFS-rt” data usage across more transit modes in TRC’s customer deployments, thereby enabling TRC’s Transit Connect feature to work.

GTFS and GTFS-rt are common standardized formats of data distribution used to provide relevant transit system data to passengers, such as transit schedules and associated geographic information. 

"Our partnership with Swiftly is positioned to advance transit accessibility, while providing greater confidence to passengers that they’ll make their connections on time,” said James Cox, CEO of TRC. “Our products are perfectly complementary; not only expanding the reach of critically-needed GTFS data from Swiftly, but leveraging it to supercharge our Transit Connect feature which guarantees on-time onward transit connections for passengers.”

In this position, Steinhardt, who joined Stertil-Koni as VP of Sales in 2022 and was named general manager in 2023, brings more than 28 years of top industry sales, marketing, and distributor management experience to the company.  

To date, in his two-year span with Stertil-Koni, Steinhardt has expanded sales into new markets, championed the use of enhanced technologies, broadened and accelerated customer support streams to elevate service, helped advance product development, and worked closely with the Stertil-Koni exclusive distributor network and company employees to further build partnerships, sales, and company branding.
