"The Transit Tech Lab was fundamental in Knaq’s ability to pilot technology quickly with various transit agencies in the city. The TTL staff provided all the necessary support and greatly reduced the complexity that would otherwise be required in such projects. We would highly recommend the Transit Tech Lab to anyone potentially interested in working with the lab’s partner agencies."

"Working with the Transit Tech Lab has been a great experience for Okeenea Digital, their guidance has been essential to our pilot with the MTA. The lab connected us with a grant funding partner that has enabled us to optimize our chances of success. If your company is ready to work with New York and would like to understand the city’s transit environment, we say go for it!"

"Transit Tech Lab ranks among the best experiences of programs we've participated in and enabled us to run a successful pilot with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. We were able to get visibility and buy-in from both senior leadership as well as from the project managers and staff that were responsible for the day-to-day implementation of our technology. I was incredibly impressed by the efficiency, innovation-friendly mindset, and commitment of PANYNJ, and found the guidance throughout the process from the rockstar team at TTL invaluable."

Jason Kang, CEO, Kinnos

veovo

"Our experience working with the MTA and the Transit Tech Lab was excellent. It would have been a long and difficult process for our company to work with the MTA without the help of the lab. Working with North America’s largest transit agency has made us more competitive and better able to serve our clients. We recommend the program to mobility companies who are ready to work with one of the biggest cities in the world."

Eddie Llado, North America Lead, Veovo

Preteckt

"The Transit Tech Lab was essential in launching Preteckt's vehicle prognostics at the MTA. The program was designed to allow MTA staff to safely and efficiently explore innovative and impactful new technology. It was amazing to see how fast such a large and important organization can move when given the right framework. The path from project definition to validation has been the fastest that we have experienced with any organization, whether commercial or municipal."

Ken Sills, CEO, Preteckt

Axon Vibe

"The Transit Tech Lab has been invaluable in setting us up with direct access to MTA’s senior decision-makers, as well as providing structure and guidance along the way to ensure a successful pilot of our technology. Working with the MTA has put Axon Vibe and our technology ‘on the map’ and has already opened up numerous new opportunities in North America and beyond."

Boris Matz, Head of North America, Axon Vibe
