Smart City Transit Integration
What does it mean for a city to be smart? Gadgets and platforms may come and go, but the smartest cities stay focused on practical solutions that will let the communities they serve build their future on their own terms. Using new technologies and best practices to serve the communities we live in—that's the Parsons approach to smart cities.
As a technology-driven firm, we use our knowledge of existing infrastructure design, construction, systems, and security (cyber and physical) to develop practical solutions to keep cities and people connected. As a systems integrator and proven implementation partner, we bring a unique perspective to every project. We are leaders in the industry and collaborate with global partners to be at the forefront of emerging technologies.
Smart cities are not without their challenges. Each new building block—be it a hyperloop, data platform, or drone delivery service—adds a new level of complexity and security protocols that need to be considered in the communities they serve. We have a long history of innovation and we are committed to providing our customers with systems and technology solutions that support and enhance their customers’ experiences. We pride ourselves on our ability to integrate new and evolving technologies with systems that have been in place since the last century, allowing us to develop practical, fundable, and buildable innovations made for the future.
Smart cities operate efficiently because of the myriad connections they enable: vehicles with other vehicles (connected vehicles); control centers with decision-makers; and, most of all, people with their jobs, their families, and their lives. These connections not only make a city smarter, they make a city more human. As smart cities continue to move from science fiction to reality, your city needs a firm that puts people first. A firm like Parsons.
