Are You Ready To Transform Learning at Your Transit Property?

On average, 20% of a workers time is spent looking for information to do their job. This is a poor way to run a business and it is one of the most frustrating parts of a person’s job. It is why we get out of bed in the morning – to change the way we learn in the transit industry.


We produce concise video tutorials designed exclusively for transit professionals. From maintenance and operations staff, to managers and safety people, we create powerful visuals to make it easier for people to learn. We also host them on a cloud-based app allowing you and your people to get on-demand access to the information that you need, when and where you need it.


We create custom transit videos by coming right to your facility. We capture your people, your vehicles, and your service area and we create compelling content that works.  The end result is that you spend less time looking for information and more time delivering quality transit service. You subscribe to the service and can access as many video tutorials as you like, as often as you like. Your people can ask questions of other members, submit videos and other content, and access the free mobile app.


With relevant and powerful video content, your people will be more engaged and actually hear the message. Your training staff will now have access to wold-class training material that they can use to optimize the “On-Boarding” of new staff, and provide cost-effective refresher training to the transit veteran.
