Hayden AI & LYT partner to deliver real-time tech solutions for public transit

Collaboration between Hayden AI’s real-time location accuracy and LYT’s transit signal priority platform set to enhance public transit reliability and experience

Two leading AI companies, Hayden AI, a provider of vision AI and spatial analytics technologies, and LYT, a provider of intelligent connected traffic technology solutions, have announced a partnership designed to holistically enhance public transportation. The companies seek to combine the real-time data and location accuracy applications of Hayden AI’s bus-mounted vision AI platform and LYT’s transit signal priority system to create technology solutions that help transit agencies improve road safety, on-time bus performance, and accessibility – several key factors for passengers when choosing public transit.

Hayden AI’s automated bus lane and bus stop enforcement platform is installed on hundreds of transit buses across the US to improve road safety, transit reliability, transportation accessibility for people with disabilities, and sustainability. LYT.transit, LYT’s transit signal priority solution, uses cloud technology powered by AI and edge processing to successfully time traffic signals so that transit buses regularly receive green lights at intersections while minimally disrupting the normal flow of traffic.

“Our customers value the high level of precision that our vision AI platform offers, and so we are thrilled to work with LYT to unlock more benefits from our technology for transit agencies,” said Chris Carson, CEO and founder of Hayden AI. “Transit zone enforcement and transit signal priority are two powerful tools to improve transit service for riders. We’re looking forward to making a more robust suite of transit technology solutions available for customers.”

Tim Menard, CEO and Founder of LYT, added: “Accurate real-time location data is essential to the effectiveness of our transit signal priority platform. Working with Hayden AI will open up even greater efficiency improvements for our transit agency customers.”

Hayden AI and LYT both have a track record of delivering transit reliability and safety improvements in cities across the United States. In New York City, where Hayden AI technology is installed on Metropolitan Transportation Authority buses, transit speeds have increased by as much as 36% on certain routes and vehicle collisions have decreased by 20% on average on streets with transit routes using this technology. In Portland, OR, TriMet’s FX2 Route experienced a 70% reduction in signal delay and a 13.2% savings on fuel costs when using LYT.transit.
