As transit fleets look for ways to improve their service experience, not only for riders, but also for operators, transit managers, and their communities as a whole, more and more innovative solutions are needed. Reducing emissions with alternative fuels or vehicle options, or installing mobile digital video recording with live tracking and streaming capabilities are two ways to make these sorts of improvements.
Chris Ishmael, president of CWI Digital Systems, discussed the benefits to the entire transit organization of installing mobile digital video recording with live tracking and streaming capabilities. Eric Lawson, a fuel consultant with MEG Corp, talked about biodiesel as a low-carbon, renewable alternative to diesel fuel that can be used in existing diesel vehicles and equipment and stored and dispensed through existing infrastructure. Both solutions are available to be installed in existing fleets to improve performance and outcomes.
