Schneider Electric awarded Transportation Management Centre Operations services contact in New York City


Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, has won a contract to continue providing Transportation Management Centre Operations services for the Joint Transportation Management Centre (JTMC) in New York City for the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT).

This award to Schneider Electric is a continuation of successful services to the JTMC and is the result of a full re-competition for this services contract. Schneider Electric has been providing transportation management centre operations services, helping the JTMC meet its mission critical goals for traffic operations, special event and incident management for the past ten years.

The JTMC, located in Long Island City in Queens County, is responsible for 24/7/365 transportation operations and management of the five boroughs of New York City. It serves as the primary operational contact point for internal and external operational stakeholders for all incidents and events which impact the transportation system across all modes of travel in New York City. The existing transportation system covers about 120 miles of the state Highway system with over 400 Closed Circuit television (CCTV) cameras, 88 overhead Variable Message Signs (VMS), 6 Highway Advisory Radio (HAR) systems, and over 600 roadway traffic detectors that feed congestion monitoring and travel time information systems. Schneider Electric will continue to staff the JTMC with qualified professionals skilled and knowledgeable in the operation of Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS).

Alfredo Escriba, Senior Vice President North America Transportation Segment, at Schneider Electric stated, “We are indeed privileged to be given the opportunity to be of service to NYSDOT. To continue to maintain the position as the world leader in the financial sector, NY State and local municipalities have invested heavily in the improvements of its transportation infrastructure to ensure seamless travel in one of the busiest metropolitan cities in the world. Schneider Electric, in partnership with NYSDOT and all other stakeholders, is providing the right people, with world-class transportation operations expertise to keep the New York metro area transportation systems efficient, safe and sustainable.”
