Tait Joins ITxPT Initiative
Monday, February 26, 2018 | Comments

Tait Communications joined the Information Technology for Public Transport (ITxPT) initiative as a principal member. ITxPT started with the European Bus System of the Future project and continues to work on standardization and cost-effective deployment of intelligent public transport systems, including on board vehicles and the back-office applications to support them.

Tait Communications has provided critical communication solutions to transport operators and authorities for nearly 50 years and is a leader in applying interoperable, open-standards-based solutions. By connecting intelligent transport system (ITS) infrastructure in the control center, on the streets and in the public transport vehicles, Tait is enabling data transmission as well as high-reliability voice communications over the whole ITS system and providing operators with tools to greatly enhance passenger service.

Tait Communications is working with key ITS providers and leading transport authorities and operators in London, Dublin and Edinburgh in the U.K.; Pilsen in the Czech Republic; Portland, Oregon, in the United States; and Queensland in Australia to design, implement and commission such communication solutions.

"In the communications world, we champion open-standards technology," said John Gardener, chief technology officer (CTO) of Tait Communications in Europe. "In joining the ITxPT initiative we aim to contribute to the development of these standards for the public-transport sector.”

“Open standards benefit society through greater choice for customers, lower development costs for their software and hardware vendors, reduced vendor lock-in and ultimately better value for customer organizations and the general public they are serving.”
