Safety is Key


Did you know taking public transportation is safer than driving a car, not only in terms of the safety of the vehicles but also in terms of the driving habits and training of the operators? Transit vehicles are maintained more regularly than a personal car and transit operators receive more training than the average automobile driver. And did you now know it's public transportation moving the needle forward on transportation safety technologies? The vehicles of tomorrow will likely use technologies being deployed by public transportation today. These safety innovations include: collision avoidance systems, pedestrian detection and avoidance, blind spot detection, and driver fatigue and inattention alerts.
