Watch it now.

An overview.

Leaders from NEORide — a council of governments representing 25 transit agencies across Midwestern and Western states — and its participating agencies discuss their approach to fostering regional collaboration through ambitious TransitTech projects. These projects include software for regional mobile ticketing and call centers ("EZFare" and "EZConnect"), both of which are connected through software and demand-responsive transit with Via.

The panelists will address their goals for regional transit, the advantages of their multi-agency approach for procurement and implementation, and the results of their collaborations with agencies and software providers alike.
