“During the COVID pandemic, digital technologies enhanced health and safety communications to make the passenger experience safer, healthier, and more accessible as riders navigated returning to work and school,” commented Rick Wood, CEO, Connectpoint. “Transit agencies including Detroit’s SMART, Seattle’s King County Metro, and Portland’s TriMet, were able to easily and quickly design their own custom messages for the Digital Bus Stop screens to communicate the need for passengers to “mask-up” before they board, keep them informed about reduced and changing services, and provide updates on new COVID rules and regulations. We are honored to have been recognized as an innovator in technology, judged by peers in the industry, and to have participated alongside other great technology leaders.”
