Multiple projects already underway to give priority to emergency and transit vehicles, improving overall traffic flow in congested metropolitan areas.

Santa Clara, Calif. –  LYT, a leader in intelligent connected traffic technology solutions, and Traffic and Parking Control Co., Inc. (TAPCO), manufacturer, distributor and service provider of traffic safety and parking control products, have agreed that TAPCO will integrate LYT solutions into public transportation agencies across the US.

TAPCO is representing LYT.emergency next-generation Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP) and LYT.transit next-generation Transit Signal Priority (TSP) to move emergency and transit vehicles through congested intersections faster, more safely and intelligently than ever before.

“Our relationship with TAPCO expands LYT’s reach into markets across the US, particularly in the midwest where TAPCO has a strong presence,” said Timothy Menard, Founder and CEO of LYT. “Together LYT and TAPCO are empowering cities everywhere to evolve into smart cities through more intelligent transit and emergency response technologies to better serve drivers, public transportation riders, and emergency responders to get to their destinations faster and more safely.”

“Partnering with LYT is an important strategic move for TAPCO and will directly bolster our growing Next Generation Traffic solutions business,” said TAPCO Managing Director Eric Stangel. “We’re thrilled to be bringing LYT’s next-generation smart emergency and transit technology solutions to increase the safety of our communities and help alleviate congestion in heavy traffic zones.”
