The Chicago Transit Authority is paving the way for smart cities with smarter, safer buses and Intel® technology at the edge.

At a glance:

  • The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) operates the nation's second largest public transportation system.

  • The CTA is using one of its busiest locations as a test bed for measuring transit occupancy. New IoT is installed and integrated with existing fare systems and onboard video feeds. A machine learning algorithm helps CTA operators deploy city buses more effectively without needing to replace their current fleet management system.
