Mass Transit - 31

"It's really revolutionary for them to
see that the moment we set this up they
can go to their cell phone and see 'wow,
my lights are working and how many
watts it's putting out right now. Or maybe
I can see that one light is out on a system.'
It just gives information that is so useful
for them," said Pew.
SmartLink offers agencies the ability
to access each stop through both a
mobile app, as well as online. They
are able to see GPS location as to
which station is being affected.
SmartLink also provides daily reports, allowing agencies to monitor
how displays are functioning.
"We talk about safety and shelter
and a lot of other things, from a user
standpoint of the street furniture
of the shelter, they're going to have
more reliability and more lighting,
which is a good thing for security,"
said Pew. "For the agency to have assurance knowing when their equipment is working and when it is not,
when they have an issue is going to
help them avoid calls from people,
that's one of the things that makes
this [technology] unique."

giving the agency or the city the ability
to give the community a clean environment, a graffiti free environment while
they're waiting for the bus. If the bus stop
is riddled with vulgar etchings it gives
customers a negative connotation and
maybe a thought of being unsafe in that
area," said Schuch.
Schuch noted the product offers agen-

cies an easy option for maintenance.
"Our whole premise is that it's a sacrificial and easy product that can be removed
so you always have a clean environment,"
said Schuch. "Agencies can simply peel off
[a cover] and install a new one in minutes.
Previously, they would have to take off
the glass and disassemble and resemble,
which would take hours."

Presenting a clean shelter

Graffiti Shield, Inc. offers agencies the
option of putting the company's clear
coating on any advertising at bus stops
or shelters. The product that Graffiti
Shield offers is easily removable; an
agency is able to remove it without
damaging the display. Graffiti Shield
also offers customization.
Mike Schuch, president of Graffiti
Shield, Inc. said, "We cut everything
on a laser machine or flatbed cutting
machine so that when the clients actually get our protective coating, they
can just clean the window, peel the
protector off the window like a giant
decal and just apply it. We take a lot
of the headache out of the process."
Graffiti Shield also offers two
additional products for use on nonglass surfaces.
"We offer a custom product that is
usually color matched to metal surfaces - whether it's stainless steel or harder coated - we, as well, do printing and
marketing on both of our materials.
It will elevate [rider's] experience by
