April 9, 2021
Vontas aims to reimagine the way intelligent transportation systems work.

Trapeze Group Americas (Trapeze) launched its new business division Vontas, focused exclusively on meeting the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) needs of transit agencies.

 Having Vontas focus exclusively on ITS means its existing customers can expect a greater focus on product innovation in the ITS space.

"In a world where riders have so many transit options, Vontas' vision is to make public transit the desired mode of transportation for every community," said Steve Sawyer, group leader, Modaxo. "I'm excited to launch Vontas to focus exclusively on innovating ITS technology and the impact it will have on our transit customers and communities."

Vontas will be led by Peter Aczel, who has more than a decade of experience in the ITS space.

"I'm thrilled to join Vontas and be part of shaping the future of transit in the Americas," said Aczel. "This marks a big milestone for Trapeze and the transit industry and the innovation we deliver to agencies."

Trapeze will continue to offer Mobility on Demand (including Demand Response), Mobility-as-a-Service, Mobility Planning and Scheduling, Asset Management, Workforce Management and Data Analytics solutions. Moving forward, Vontas will focus exclusively on current and future Intelligent Transportation Solutions (ITS) solutions, including Yard Management and Fare Collection.
