Smarter Transportation

Smarter Transportation banner

 A bus, train or car to work. A bike to school. A plane for a business trip. Even if you don't leave your home, your life is still influenced by the transportation industry: virtually every tangible good – food, clothing, medicine, vehicles and computers – has been transported into your world from somewhere else. IBM has a long history in transportation and works with some of the most advanced operators of transportation networks around the world, from municipal governments to railway operators to airlines.
