ATA NEWS RELEASE: ATA joins "Every Ride Counts" national campaign in 2019

“Every Ride Counts” is the name of a nationwide awareness program from the National Aging and Disability Transportation Center (NADTC). The program was launched in December 2018 along with the release of a comprehensive transportation survey of older adults, people with disabilities and caregivers. ATA participated in the launch of “every ride counts” during a news conference held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on December 7th. NADTC is funded by the Federal Transit Administration. It is administered by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging and Easterseals, with guidance from the Administration for Community Living of the Department of Health and Human Services.


NADTC offers training and support to service providers and transportation agencies like ATA. The mission of NADTC is to assure that older adults, people with disabilities and caregivers are aware of how local ATA Bus 550transportation options can help them get where they need to go. ATA has already distributed nearly 1,000 copies of a publication from NADTC called “Before You Give Up the Keys”. ATA has made this “planner” booklet available free of charge.

Brand new - ATA Bus 550 will soon join the fleet.

“NADTC’s publication shows how to “Create a Roadmap for Transportation Independence” with action steps and resources for seniors, family members and care givers making the decision about whether to continue driving.”


The NADTC booklet with personal “needs checklist” card, was developed to help people 65-plus in three important steps – “learn, prepare and act” – so that when the decision is made to give up the keys, seniors will already have a roadmap to guide them to full mobility.


For nearly 45 years ATA has been a transit agency for people of all ages, including area seniors. It provides a variety of accessible bus and paratransit services in Cameron, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson, McKean, and Potter counties. ATA has a long-standing commitment and expertise to help area seniors in their transition from driving to riding the ATA bus. The agency participates in workshops and senior citizen gatherings throughout the year providing information concerning route schedules, senior photo I.D.’s, and the shared ride for seniors program. (Seniors, age 65+ get an 85% discount on general public fares on non-fixed ATA routes.)
“Most people take for granted that they can wake up each day, get in their car, drive to work, drive home, drive to the grocery store or to a movie, and get wherever they want to go. But for some, the time will come when they can no longer drive a car.”

“Every Ride Counts”
Have you tried ATA transit? ATA says that its new riders are often surprised how easy it is.
“ATA can be a compass in guiding interested seniors and disabled persons to their mobility roadmap and continued independence. It starts with a phone call.”

PROJECT WILL IMPROVE OPERATIONS, CUSTOMER SERVICE AT 32 TRANSIT SYSTEMS
03/01/2018

State College, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) held an event today to announce it has chosen Avail Technologies Inc. of State College, Pa., to implement a Fixed Route Intelligent Transportation System (FRITS) for 32 transit systems that will offer real-time service information for passengers, flexible fare payment options, and enhanced transit planning.

The company currently employs 92 people, 81 of whom work at the State College headquarters, and anticipates a 10 to 20 percent staff increase because of this and other recent contracts.

Avail Logo"We are using data to improve our operations and customer service throughout the department, and we're excited to expand our efforts in improving transit services," PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards said of the event. "This project will enhance transit agencies' data collection and reporting while improving communications with staff and customers."

In addition to the service improvements that customers will see, the enhancements will assist with monitoring vehicles' condition, automatically count passengers boarding or leaving vehicles, and provide a statewide reporting database for the department and transit agencies.

"The way that people use and interact with transportation services is changing, and that includes public transportation," PennDOT Deputy Secretary for Multimodal Transportation Toby Fauver said at the event. "Better data and technology ultimately improves efficiency and meets customer needs."

The nearly $35.7 million, five-year project will begin this spring and installation is estimated to occur over three years. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority and Port Authority of Allegheny County are not included in the project because of their significant time and resources invested in their own similar systems.

"Avail is thrilled to be working with PennDOT and our state transit agencies to deploy the nation's first statewide Fixed Route Intelligent Transportation System solution, which will create a common technology platform across all agencies to facilitate new operational standards and a level of operational data analysis that has never been seen before," said Avail Technologies Inc. President and CEO Dorsey E. Houtz. "The FRITS project will be watched very closely by other states and again, Avail is thrilled to be on the team that will make PA the nation's shining star of technology adoption in fixed route transit."

Public transportation is available in some form in every Pennsylvania county. To see available services, visit www.penndot.gov​ in the "Public Transit Options" section of "Travel In PA."

With nearly two decades of nationwide experience serving the transit industry, Avail Technologies is pioneering total transit solutions and offers products for CAD/AVL, Passenger Information Systems, Finance Management, Payroll Processing, Human Resources, Inventory Management, Maintenance, Asset Management, Procurement Management, Operations, Planning/Scheduling, Statistical Reporting Management, as well as federal, state and National Transit Database (NTD) reporting. The company also has an office in Las Vegas, Nev.
