  • Looking for innovative ways to meet Public Transit Needs and pursue operational excellence
changes to foster partnering
Changes to Foster Partnering
  • Pre 2008:
    • “Silo mentality” each division seeking innovations
    • Few External collaborations
  • In 2008:
    • Two New Groups Formed with Joint Goals
    • Innovation and Technology
    • Strategy, Benchmarking and Best Practices

Transit Group Support for:

      • Innovative Developments
      • External Technology Evaluation
      • Best Practices and Technology Implementation
  • Open Innovation:Systematic use of external resources to supplement internal innovation and development efforts
why nyct supports open innovation
Why NYCT Supports Open Innovation?
  • Increased pressure for faster, better and lower cost Public Transit Service to New York’s Metropolitan Area
  • NYCT has limited resources for Technology Research and Development
  • Technology Advances in non-Transit Area Applications have greatly accelerated.
  • NYCT’s size and complexity greatly inhibits any natural ability to be agile in evaluation and adoption of new approaches and technology.
