The Next Big Thing in Transportation

Innovative companies are the first to identify, develop, and launch new ideas into the marketplace. The Alta Incubator program was created to support Alta staff in implementing their big ideas from concept to reality. Whether structured as a research project, like our 2017 data collection technology incubator, or as an accelerator, like our 2015 study that brought protected intersection treatments to the US, Alta Incubators are pushing forward new ideas, advancing the active transportation field.
