For more than 60 years Transign has provided the transit industry with high quality, durable destination signs with a reputation of superior customer service and support. Transign was founded by James Youngblood in 1959 with a commitment to “Quality Products backed by Quality Customer Service.” Transign rapidly became the established market leader in a variety of innovative products for the transit industry.
For the decades following, Transign continued to introduce technologically advanced solutions adopted by leading manufacturers, bus dealers, transit agencies, and fleet operators throughout North America. During that time, Transign revolutionized the transit signage industry with the introduction of several cutting edge products such as “Bus-O-Rama” illuminated advertising panels (sometimes nicknamed “batwings”, or "winged fishbowls"), Mylar for roller curtain signs, and patented the original flip-dot system controller, known as the “Message Monitor” that evolved into the current LED Destinator® signs.
Now owned by James' daughter Jill Youngblood, Transign carries on the tradition and dedication of providing technologically advanced applications, and dedication to our founding principles of delivering unrivaled service and support.
Transign remains the only manufacturer supplying roller curtain signs to meet the ongoing demand due to their cost advantage and superior graphics resolution over electronic signs.
Today, with public transportation in greater demand than ever before, Transign continues to lead the industry with innovative products and services such as interior and exterior LED destination and passenger information signs, automated voice announcements, geo-location tracking and message delivery, smart device passenger information applications, passenger counting solutions, and dynamic reporting tools.
