Meet SPOT®

A powerful solution for any transit situation.

SPOT: The Intelligent Transit System that grows with you.

SPOT (Spatial Position On Transit) is ETA Transit’s flagship ITS (Intelligent Transit System) product. Built on an open-architecture platform, it includes all the tools you need to improve transit operations and dramatically improve rider experience. SPOT is simple to install and utilizes commercially available, off-the-shelf hardware which means it’s inexpensive to maintain and incredibly easy to use. This is what makes it the must-have intelligent transit system within the public transportation industry.

A turn-key, fully-featured solution

At its core, SPOT is designed to be implemented quickly and efficiently; requiring very little involvement from your key personnel during development. Our approach is highly collaborative so you can be assured that the system will meet your requirements and the deployment strategy will minimize the impact to your day-to-day operations.

  • Commercial, off-the-shelf hardware
  • Deploy in as little as 10 weeks
  • Robust features and capabilities

Designed for your long-term success

Implementing a new ITS represents a big investment of time, money, and resources, so it’s only logical that your new transit solution is designed to adapt to meet your changing market conditions. SPOT is modular in design, so adding new capabilities down the line is simple, quick, and cost-effective.
