Transit systems nationwide are exploring technological advancements as they continue to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.
“What’s been most exciting is building partnerships within and beyond the big agencies,” said Natalia Quintero, the new senior vice president of innovation at the Partnership for New York City. She is responsible for leading the Transit Innovation Partnership with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority other regional agencies, and developing other related public-private initiatives.
Under the TIP’s three-year-old Transit Tech Lab accelerator program, of which Quintero was founding director, companies have the opportunity to pilot their technologies with the MTA.
