The nation’s largest statewide public transit agency joins as an agency member of Smart City Works Venture Studio to continue to pursue proven innovation methods and best practices for using technology in delivering safe, affordable quality transportation to its customers.

“We are interested to explore the SCWVS model. Interaction with market participants, access to innovation startups, learning about the studio’s research and its academic alliances, and interacting with the studio team and advisors are all valuable. The studio can therefore provide a valuable perspective that can help NJ TRANSIT in its ongoing efforts to improve efficiency and effectiveness by leveraging relevant and meaningful innovation.”

Jeremy Colangelo-Bryan, Chief Planner at NJ TRANSIT

“For many years, our industry has been reluctant to fully embrace innovation and technological advancement, but over the past few years, we have seen significant investments from industry-leading companies, private equity, and VC sources. As corporations and agencies alike realize the vast gains digital transformation can provide, the ecosystem created by Smart City Works Venture Studio offers them insights, access to innovation, talent development opportunities, and exposure to proven methods and best practices that can make a big impact.”
