The MTA Genius Transit Challenge has named Thales as a winner in the Signaling category for its innovative onboard systems. MTA chose Thales’s Onboard Sensors and Cameras for Train Positioning proposal because the technologies behind the systems would perform train positioning more efficiently and more accurately, while at the same time maintaining a high degree of safety, reducing delays and mitigating costs.
Governor Cuomo and MTA’s Genius Transit Challenge is an important step towards more efficient and more reliable transit services in New York City. As a company passionate about innovation, Thales is here to help the Governor and MTA master the complexities they face for the most complex metro in North America – whatever it takes.
