Transit Tech Lab Accelerator

Online ticket sales have closed, but a limited number of tickets will be available at the door. 

In October, the Transit Innovation Partnership, a joint initiative of the Partnership for New York City and the MTA, announced new challenges and an expanded slate of partners for the Transit Tech Lab, its transit startup accelerator program. This built on the progress of its first inaugural program, currently underway with four pilots by winning companies Axon VibePretecktRemix, and Veovo. The Transit Tech Lab allows the MTA and other public transportation agencies to test innovative solutions to the challenges of operating the region’s subway, bus and commuter rail services, with the mission of making New York City the global leader in transportation.

Open House New York, in partnership with A/D/O, invites you to the first public showcase of the Transit Tech Lab’s projects with presentations on the first accelerator winners and a conversation on the experience of collaborating and addressing challenges with the world’s largest public transportation agencies featuring Julian Bautista-Rojas, Principal Transportation Planner, MTA Bus Company; Suri Grussgott, Special Advisor, Office of the President, New York City Transit; Katie Swift, Manager, Office of the President, New York City Transit; Raymond Hernandez, Superintendent, New York City Transit; and Aaron Sugiura, Director of Transit Policy & Planning, New York City Department of Transportation; moderated by Rachel Haot, Executive Director, Transit Innovation Partnership. The Transit Tech Lab will also share new details on the revenue, accessibility, and traffic coordination challenges that regional transit operators plan to address with innovative companies in the next round of the accelerator program.
