MTS believes that partnering and teaming with the best companies leads to the best project outcomes -- whether specializing in technology, systems integration, finance or program management. MTS has or is teaming with the following companies.


Magnetic Transport Systems is teaming with Siemens to develop zero emissions freight and passenger rail transportation systems using linear synchronous motor (LSM) technology. Siemens AG (NYSE: SI) is a global leader in electronics and electrical engineering, and operates in the industry, energy and healthcare sectors. For more than 160 years, Siemens has built leading-edge innovations. With 360,000 employees in 190 countries, Siemens reported worldwide sales of $119.7 billion in fiscal 2011. With its U.S. corporate headquarters in Washington, DC, Siemens in the USA reported sales of $22.0 billion and employs more than 60,000 people throughout all 50 states and Puerto Rico.



Siemens' Mobility and Logistics Division in the U.S. is a leading provider of transportation and logistics solutions, moving people and goods efficiently and safely and is promoting and using green manufacturing technologies. Siemens manufactures light rail vehicles for North America at its Sacramento plant - a facility mainly powered by solar energy. Teaming with Siemens as subcontractors are AECOM and Innovative Transportation Systems Corporation.

Engineering/Environmental Consulting

AECOM is the world’s largest engineering and environmental consulting firm specializing in large infrastructure projects to a broad range of markets, including transportation, facilities, environmental and energy. Representing the major ports of the world, AECOM headquartered in Los Angeles Ca., supervised construction of the Alameda Corridor Project.



Macquarie Group is a global provider of banking, financial, advisory, investment and funds management services. As an owner and manager of significant community assets, Macquarie works closely with governments around the world to deliver important services including transport, roads, airports and utilities.




Southern California Edison (SCE) is the product of more than a century of providing reliable electric service to central, coastal and southern California. The electric power SCE provides includes more alternate and renewable energy (16.7%), from a greater variety of resources, than nearly any other utility in the world.  SCE's Electric Transportation Department is taking a leadership role in helping determine practical and efficient alternative-fuel options – for both on- and non-road vehicles and equipment – to save energy and money.
