About Verra Mobility
Verra Mobility (NASDAQ: VRRM) focuses on making life safer, easier, and more connected for their customers and the communities they serve. As a global leader in smart transportation, they connect people, technology, and data across the smart mobility ecosystem. Their customized technology solutions solve complex transportation challenges. Verra Mobility provides their Commercial Services customers (including rental car companies, fleet management companies, and large fleet operators) with technology to help them manage tolls, violations, and vehicle registrations, as well as outsource the collection of drivers’ parking fines. Their Government Solutions customers consist of municipalities, school districts, and other entities. They install, maintain, and manage the technology that positively impacts driver behavior and enhances road safety such as red light, speed, and bus lane cameras.
A poignant example is CrossingGuard, a school bus-stop arm -solution that incorporates all services required to successfully reduce illegal school bus passing, from the installation and maintenance of security cameras to event processing, payment, and court support. It is violator-funded so there are no upfront costs. Also, it has been proven to be highly effective in protecting children as they travel to and from school. As cities become smarter and mobility becomes more complex, connected, and automated, Verra Mobility makes life safer and easier on the road.
