Enabling Intelligent Transit Stops Challenge

Challenge is Closed

Enabling Intelligent Transit Stops

Are you an innovator or business with technologies for a detection and communication system for transit stops to help Durham Region Transit better understand passenger behaviour and improve customer service?


The Region of Durham and Durham Region Transit (DRT) are launching a challenge to innovators and businesses under the theme of Connected and Smart Mobility.

As outlined in The Route Ahead, Service Strategy 2022-2025, DRT is growing ridership by delivering efficient and effective mobility solutions. As ridership continues to fluctuate post-pandemic, it’s important that we support customers waiting at transit stops.

We challenge the business community to provide a detection and communication system for transit stops that enables DRT to understand passenger behaviour at transit stops and improve overall customer experience. Successful challenge participants can pilot solutions at key transit stops throughout the network.



Durham Region Transit anticipates that a successful challenge applicant will collaborate with municipal staff to test and evaluate a technology for its ability to detect the number of customers at transit stops and provide relevant information to DRT for analysis. The solution should also allow communication with customers at transit stops
