"Before installing foot switches from Transtech Innovations, we were replacing our mechanical units on average once a year. Since 1996, we have installed more than 750 units on various models with excellent results. With the latest model we have hardly needed replacement or maintenance. All in all, a great return on our investment!"

“We asked Transtech Innovations to collaborate on the development of a new Auxiliary Power Control Box for one of our clients. It was a fast-track project, and Transtech's contribution was instrumental. They responded quickly with a full commitment. We met the deadlines and installed a robust and highly reliable unit.”

The Bus Industry—Bus Power Electronics, Bus Monitoring Systems, and Bus Control Module Products

The focus on environmentally-conscious transportation will likely boost the bus market over the coming years. As governments increasingly encourage people to put away their cars and take the bus, demand for high-quality bus service and bus products will continue to grow. Tuning in to those trends, Transtech Innovations manufactures high-quality bus control modules, bus voltage regulators, and other bus power electronics to suit individual client needs. We offer custom and ready-made items to meet your diverse manufacturing requirements.

Today, many manufacturers are exploring the use of clean fuels and alternative engines for more environmentally friendly bus engineering. In the US alone, approximately 4,000 companies provide local bus service, with an annual revenue totaling $9 billion. In Europe, some major urban cities are limiting private car access into the city center on certain days and forcing the population to use public transit. The challenge to increase bus use depends on the transformation of buses into transport that is comfortable and classy. The more convenient bus transit becomes, and the better the functionality of bus electronics and bus control modules, the more individuals will opt to take the bus. Temperature control, lighting, automatic doors, orientation control and other discrete and acoustic features are all valuable elements of bus functionality that impact the commuter’s experience.

For many countries, an emphasis has been placed on designing a lightweight body, so that the average mass of recent bus designs has been reduced by 10-20%. In the US, the 2009 economic stimulus bill allocated $6.9 billion for new public transportation projects. With increased funding, many transit authorities are investing in hybrid buses, which operate on dual diesel and electric engines and consume less fuel. As the bus market continues to grow, so does the demand for various bus control modules and bus power electronics. Transtech is ready to address the challenges of an evolving industry and design improved and economical bus power electronics and bus control module products.
