To make meaningful contributions to worldwide mobility. At Clever Devices, our goal is to be the leading provider of exciting technology that improves the quality of mobility in communities around the world.
Our story begins in the early 1980’s in the basement of a bar on Long Island. Called the Hi Ho Doorbell Company in those days, we manufactured digital doorbells that played music and other interesting sounds. By 1988 the company had changed its name to Clever Devices and began focusing on developing the audio sounds used in some of the most popular arcade games of the time.
Then, in 1990 with the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the company began to focus primarily on the transit industry. Our first product automated the announcements bus drivers were required to make at each stop.
Today, we are a growing company with over 600 employees in 12 locations in the United States, Canada, Brazil and Italy. We count among our customers some of the largest transit agencies in the world and we pride ourselves on our cutting-edge portfolio of solutions that help transit agencies work smarter, safer and more efficiently.
From the largest public transport agency in the United States with over 6000 vehicles to a small city agency with just 30 – Clever Devices’ customers come in all sizes. From Bus to Rail to Paratransit, our cutting-edge solutions are designed for all modes of transportation.
Clever Devices is a privately owned company. Our owners are involved in the day-to-day running of our operations and are dedicated to creating lasting partnerships with the public transport providers who trust us with their ITS solutions. Our leadership team is comprised of forward-looking, dedicated and experienced executives – many of whom have been with the company for many years and have been instrumental in growing the business to where it is today. Working together with one another and with our clients, they are driving the future of public transportation around the world.Meet the Leadership Team
