Transit Systems Incorporated was founded in 1986. Since inception, our corporate focus has maintained a certain duality, Quality and Diversification. Quality means more to us than just manufacturing a part to specifications. Quality is interwoven through all aspects of our operations. It includes being a responsive and responsible corporation, delivering materials on time and utilizing the latest manufacturing techniques to provide the best product available. Our desire to stay on the leading edge of technology will enhance our corporate focus and afford us the opportunity to meet the challenges that lie ahead.
Our diversification program encompasses all facets of our marketing strategy. We have a diverse product line, manufacturing capacity and customer base. This diversity has helped to keep us strong in the volatile marketplace. We have worked on several overhaul projects in addition to our replacement part business. The overhaul consists of manufacturing new parts or assemblies for a fleet of commuter cars. Some of these projects are as follows:

We overhauled the Long Island Rail Road’s M-1 and M-3 fleet of air conditioner and vapor control group covers. The LIRR design was for a fiberglass cover having a variety of mechanical and electrical properties. We also fabricated 650 vestibule ceiling assemblies. The project consisted of eight different aluminum extrusions with fiberglass light panels.

We have completed several large contracts for Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. TSI manufactured plymetal flooring for the Blue Line. We also fabricated door sets for the Trackless Trolley cars and exterior fiberglass panels for the Green Line.

On New Jersey Transits’ Arrow 3 Fleet, we overhauled the air conditioner covers. TSI fabricated and installed handicap access ramps pursuant to the ADA of 1990. The installation included mounting ramp boxes on the station platforms along the Northeast Corridor from Newark to Trenton. We have fabricated this product for both New Jersey Transit and Amtrak.

Our regular replacement part business covers a broad spectrum. Some of the parts are station maintenance parts as with New York City Transit Authority. These parts include fiberglass sand boxes that are either one or one half cubic yard containers which are located on the station platforms. TSI also fabricates a series of fiberglass products that prevents sediment from dripping on the cars as they travel through the subway tunnels.

The bulk of our replacement part business are components for commuter cars, light rail vehicles, subways and buses. A sampling of the parts that TSI manufactures for Metro North Commuter Railroad include propulsion group covers, specialty high strength bolts, such as the vertical suspension bolt and bolster bar, flexible and stainless steel ducts, coupler adapters, uncoupling wrenches, sleeves, brackets, washers, shims, traction motor covers and motor brackets. LIRR and NJ Transit use many of the same parts as well as aluminum control box covers, circuit breaker covers, stainless steel battery box covers, battery box trays, bus bars, ground cables and shunts to name a few.

We have over 20 different extrusions that are used in various places on the Volvo, Eagle, Flexible and RTS Buses. Most of these extrusions are widow frames and locks. Others are used on the door openings or to hold the side panels and skirts in place. TSI manufactures tail light assemblies, corner panels and a variety of other items.

Transit Systems Incorporated also engages in contracts outside of the mass transit industry. Our broad manufacturing capacity easily lends itself to commercial work. The products mentioned above represent a small portion of our diversified product line. We have the capacity to fabricate small or large runs of custom or standard parts. Please give us a call and let our experienced quality team work for you.
