The Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO) operates the most used bus system in Texas and the METRORail, a system that sees 18.3 million riders annually. METRO has partnered with Station Houston and the #HOUtech community to bring this special edition of Houston’s Startup Demo Day: Transportation and Mobility Innovation Edition. Participating founders will present innovative solutions to the most pressing transportation and mobility challenges, and a panel of transportation experts will weigh-in to select the March winner of Houston’s Startup Demo Day!
“METRO continues to look for the most innovative and bold ideas to move our city. We are proud to be one of the few transit agencies in the U.S. to see an increase in ridership due to its ability to listen and respond to the needs of our customers. Whether it’s our new Bluetooth “Find My Stop” Beacon for finding your way on the system or our upcoming Autonomous Vehicle Shuttle, Houston METRO is open for innovation. This opportunity to partner with Station Houston allows us to engage Houston’s robust start-up community in our journey.”
– Thomas C. Lambert, President & CEO, METRO
“As METRO embarks on its long-range strategic plan to build a mobility system for the future, connecting to the innovation and start-up community is critical to our success. We look forward to sparking the conversation through our partnership with Station Houston. This is an exciting beginning of how Houston’s start-up community and METRO can team to innovate products, ideas and services to enhance the customer experience and benefit mobility for METRO customers and the entire region.
–Kim Williams, Chief Innovation Officer, METRO
