Connecting our cities.
Moving our economy.
60 percent of the world’s population will live in cities by 2030. That’s several billion people getting from point A to B within urban areas every day. Billions of people making daily journeys so they can earn a living, get an education, or buy food.
Mass transit is the backbone of urban life. As our cities grow, our population ages, and we work to reduce our collective carbon footprint, it will continue to play an even bigger role.
Buses and trains move people who can’t drive or afford to put fuel in their car. They move people who choose not to drive so they can avoid traffic or live a greener life. They move people who want or need to travel from one city to another for business or pleasure without the hassle of the long lines and high prices of flying. They drive the economy.
Whether we take mass transit as a choice or out of necessity, we all have one thing in common: the need to ride in comfort on the safest fleets. We expect this from our transit authorities, who in turn demand safer, more comfortable equipment from bus and rail manufacturers – while everyone works within set budgets.
