GIRO wins 'Grand Prize' for rail innovation

Posted on November 28, 2018

Recent HASTUS software developments for the passenger rail industry were recognized by the Québec Transport Association (AQTr) in its 2018 Rail Innovation Awards.

GIRO was selected as winner of the 2018 Grand Prize for Rail Innovation after a shortlisting process, followed by a members’ vote during the Rail Symposium held in Montréal. The selection criteria were industry relevance, innovation, capacity for bringing improvement, and the solution’s ability to be applied in various contexts.

“We are honored to receive this award,” said Jean Aubin, GIRO’s president and CEO. “Over the past several years, we have invested significantly in R&D to drive greater value for rail operators, such as SNCF Transilien, and provide solutions to support them in transforming their operations.”

GIRO’s HASTUS software helps plan and manage passenger rail networks around the world, including SNCF Transilien in Paris; Keolis Commuter Services in Greater Boston; SNCB in Belgium; and Queensland Rail in Australia.
