The Advanced Transit Association (ATRA) is a diverse group of people brought together by the realization that the systems of the past can not meet the transit needs of the present. As non-profit corporation, ATRA’s purpose is to encourage the development and deployment of advanced transportation systems that will benefit society. ATRA strives to serve as an objective information resource to help decision makers navigate the often complex issues surrounding transportation.
The ATRA Industry Group (IG) promotes and provides objective information on fully-automated, market-ready transit systems capable of operating in a network. ATRA IG represents all advanced transit industry disciplines. Membership is only open to businesses and corporations experienced with applications of advanced transit. Members include Arup, Lea+Elliott, Berger/ABAM, PRT Consulting, Modutram, ULTra Global PRT and Podaris in addition to 2getthere.
2getthere is a corporate member of ATRA and a founding member of the ATRA Industry Group. We serve on the board of ATRA IG and actively contribute to the activities, including the PodcarCity Conference. 2getthere believes that the knowledge on automated transit is not widespread and requires a pro-active approach to provide information to customers (cities and developers), professionals (consultants and engineers) and the general public.
