California Transit Association

Innovation Theater

The California Transit Association’s Innovation Theater is back for 2018! A place of learning set in a casual environment built to facilitate peer sharing, problem solving through innovation, technology, and collaboration, the Innovation Theater will be presented twice at this year's conference – Wednesday, October 24 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. and Thursday, October 25 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.

Attendees will be able to experience the latest upgrades and products that maximize today’s cutting-edge technologies. Specifically, our goal is to have them see first-hand how an innovative product will transform transit by redesigning the future in order to stay relevant.

Participants will see a new technology or innovative product demonstrated by a supplier and a transit agency representative in 10 minutes presentations in an intimate theater-like setting.  Presenters will share how a technology or innovative product has helped improve public transit. Agency representatives can exchange best practices with peers and learn about the latest in transit technology.

Suppliers will be on-hand to share general knowledge and expert advice and comment. Facilitated by transit agency representatives, conversations of technology implementations and outcomes will be presented in 10-minute intervals, followed by an open forum where attendees are welcome to flow about the theater.

This is a unique opportunity to connect with industry professionals who will have insight and solutions to the latest challenges in the transit industry, and receive one-on-one attention during follow-up question-and-answer sessions.
