Transign is thrilled to be exhibiting at the Community Transportation Association of America’s 2017 Community Transportation EXPO, held next week in Detroit, Michigan, and showcase its newest product, the LED Destinator EnCompass™, a GPS-based, hands-free message system to improve route communication and passenger safety.
The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) is a national, nonprofit membership association advocating for mobility for all Americans. The Community Transportation EXPO, CTAA’s annual conference, is the confluence of the community transportation field.
This year’s conference is appropriately named Mobility Rising. The need for verifying forms of mobility choices and the outcome from those choices has never been greater than it is now, and are a concern for cities and communities across the country. This is the first year the EXPO will be held in Michigan, and Transign is excited to have the EXPO in our own backyard and we are proud to support the CTAA and all of its efforts to further mobility in America.
Matthew Welbes, Acting Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) will kick off the conference with the Opening Luncheon on Tuesday, June 13th, and will provide an update on FTA activities and initiatives. Then on Wednesday, June 14th, Shannon Bouton, Chief Operating Officer, McKinsey Center for Business and Environment and Mark de la Vergne, Chief of Mobility Innovation at the City of Detroit will present the Keynote Session: The Future of Mobility. In addition to these presentations, the conference features five tracks full of interesting and informative sessions, as well as roundtables, endless networking opportunities, tours and finishes with a bang at the Big Night Out Event, which will be held at the historic Henry Ford Museum.
If you’re attending the EXPO this year, please make sure and come to the EXPO Trade Show and visit us at Booth 532.
