A Look Back on 2023 at Vontas

A Look Back on Vontas 2023

As we bid farewell to another eventful year, we wanted to spend some time to reminisce at the impact we made in 2023 and look ahead at all that 2024 has in store.

To achieve that goal, we work to create smart, safe, reliable, accessible, and more connected public transit experiences—and none of our successes this past year would have been possible without your support.
