Signs in Action unveiled at APTA 2011

Aesys North America will unveil Signs in Action at APTA Expo 2011, October 3-5 in New Orleans, booth #2649. Combining Aesys' 30 years of LED signage experience with ETA Transit Systems, Inc (ETA)'s state of the art open architecture Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) software, Signs in Action offers transit agencies a low-cost and flexible complete intelligent transit solution. The system incorporates the Spatial Positioning on Transit (SPOT) software with displays for on-board, bus stop and bus station. In addition to this full range of displays, core system features include automatic vehicle location (AVL) with predictive arrival technology, automatic voice announcements (AVA), and emergency response plan messaging. The system also offers optional modules for integration with other systems such as mobile video surveillance, fare box, and automatic passenger counting devices.

ETA president John Maglio hailed the partnership as "combining a solid, well-established manufacturer of transportation variable message signs with a leading supplier of proven, cutting-edge ITS software applications" and "a major step forward for both Aesys and ETA."
Colin McGregor, managing director, Aesys North America: "With the ETA partnership, we are able to offer our customers a complete ITS solution that is affordable and scalable for both small and large transit agencies. Our customers will be able to provide a full range of bus status information, including on-board, at bus stops and stations, and even on mobile devices."

As part of Signs in Action, Aesys will be demonstrating display integration with the bus shelter company Handi-Hut. All Aesys displays are Buy America compliant. For show details or to register for free, visit the official APTA Expo website at
