Transit Tech Lab seeking innovative safety solutions during coronavirus crisis

The Transit Tech Lab, a program focused on identifying and testing innovative transit-based technologies to improve network service and bolster customer experience, has now set its sights on enhancing mass transit safety amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The MTA and the Transit Innovation Partnership have announced the third round of the Transit Tech Lab, this time seeking private companies that can provide innovative technological solutions to make transit safer, cleaner, healthier and more responsive…

The Lab offers the MTA a faster, less expensive way to test and review new technologies developed by the top transit innovators in the world.

The MTA is seeking submissions for products that can improve health and safety throughout the transit system, specifically products that can eliminate contaminated aerosols in a confined environment.
