ETA Transit Systems completes Va. ITS installation

Posted on March 14, 2017

ETA Transit Systems announced the successful implementation of its SPOT® Intelligent Transit System (ITS) at Va.’s Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) operations. The installation represents a significant upgrade to an outdated platform and marks a substantial improvement in capabilities for both CAT and its customers.

The new ITS platform delivers a wide-ranging impact by providing real-time vehicle arrival predictions, robust reporting and data analytic capabilities, and an impressive suite of traveler information systems.

"The impact this will have on CAT and its riders is significant and will touch every corner of our operations,” CAT Transit Director John Jones said. “In one bold stroke, we have brought 21st century technology to the area's transit offerings, and established a foundation that will allow us to actively pursue new capabilities in the future."

Regular riders will immediately notice upgrades to the large LCD screens at the Downtown Transit Station.

"One of the things CAT wanted was to better communicate arrivals with its customers," stated ETA president John Maglio. "The flexibility of our SPOT system allowed us to develop a custom solution that simplified the display of information on monitors located throughout the system. We actively solicit our customers for new ideas, and their idea proved to be a worthwhile addition to our already impressive set of passenger information systems."
