One key ingredient to attracting and retaining ridership is your on-time performance. Learn how one agency went about addressing their historic low on-time performance. Does the quality of lighting in a facility have a major impact on functionality, including the health and happiness - and even the retention of staff and customers? One of the speakers thinks so and is prepared to share their knowledge. As public transit agencies make strides to upgrade their operations technology, they start to create data which feeds into a 'big data explosion'. Without a strategy to harness that data it will only serve as a 'rear-view mirror'.

Learn from our panelists how to use this data as a predictive analysis tool to improve your scheduling of resources, tasks, timetables, etc.
