Transit Challenge Stream

As a leader in transportation innovation, Parsons is delving into the intricate intersection of transit safety, technology-enabled interventions, data utilization, and ridership journeys. Parsons is beckoning forward-thinking minds to explore novel solutions that leverage cutting-edge technology to fortify transit safety measures, revolutionize the rider experience, and harness data insights for informed decision-making for both the transit operator and the public.
Parsons Corporation has provided three transit challenges which focus on innovative solutions that gather, analyse, monitor, and predict safety, interventions, and user experience.
