Earlier this month, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the Partnership for New York City launched a new vertical accelerator dedicated to public transit. The mission is to make the city a global leader in this space.
Applications are open until November 30, 2018 and they are looking for early and growth stage companies that address one or both of the following challenges:
- How can we better predict subway incident impacts and serve customers?
- How can we make buses faster and more efficient?
Selected companies will go through an 8-week accelerator and, at the end of it, the most promising companies will partner with the MTA on a 12-month pilot. So it is an opportunity to potentially test your product(s) on the largest transit authority in the US.
If you’d like to apply, you can do that here.
