Passio Technologies passes 20 million passengers counted milestone

November 02, 2015


ATLANTA — Passio Technologies’ solutions have been used to count more than 20 million passengers at transit systems across the country.

In less than four years, Passio has partnered with more than 35 municipalities, universities and private companies to deploy customized transit technology solutions aimed at optimizing operations and enhancing the passenger experience.

Passenger counting is one of Passio’s core service offerings. The company has worked with organizations to deploy automatic, identification, driver-managed and “bring your own device” (BYOD) solutions based on an organization’s needs.

“The team at Passio, in many ways, is an extension of my in-house team at the University,” said Kristi Bryant, director of parking and transportation for Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Ga. “The Passio solution provides me with the quick access to data and analytics I need to make decisions in real time that help us operate on a daily basis.”

Georgia Southern University, as Passio’s largest customer by ridership last year, carried more than 2.1 million passengers across its network. In addition, the University at Buffalo registered more than 1.4 million passengers, making it Passio’s second largest client; the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) was the company’s third largest by ridership last year.

The 20 million mark looks to be just the start for Passio. Current projections put the number of passengers counted to more than 12 million over the next year alone and increasing from there in subsequent years.

“Reaching 20 million passengers counted is a significant milestone for a company that is just five years old,” said Scott Reiser, co-founder and CTO of Passio. “We are excited about the growth and the opportunities ahead and are looking forward to helping more organizations improve their transit operations through metrics like passenger counting.”
