MTA subways are controlled by an aging signaling system. By digitizing this signaling system, the MTA can safely and reliably run more subways cars more closely together, increasing capacity and making travel more enjoyable.
This challenge calls for technology to implement a more efficient, reliable subway signaling system quickly and cost-effectively.
Apply by February 3, 2020 for the chance to pilot and contract with the MTA. Semifinalists will be invited to the Signaling Challenge Demo Day on March 13, 2020.
Selected challenge winners access partnership opportunities on an accelerated timeline as part of the MTA's $7 billion signaling program including but not limited to:
MTA subject matter experts and private sector judges will evaluate applications to the signaling challenge according to the following criteria:
