Rhode Island Public Transportation Authority

A decade of great service

Altro Transflor Chroma (Zeal)

“Our partnership with Altro is impeccable. We are a loyal customer because of the service that Paul Poziemski provides.”

Joe Monti, Assistant Superintendent - RIPTA


The Rhode Island Public Transportation Authority (RIPTA) has operated public transport services from its facilities in Providence and Newport Rhode Island since 1964 (55 years). RIPTA's average daily ridership is 45,800 passengers per day so a quality, durable, slip-resistant flooring is very important to RIPTA.

RIPTA has been a loyal customer of Altro for ten years, enjoying a decade of excellent slip resistance, great design options and tough resilience on their vehicles.


Quality, reliable flooring is top of RIPTA’s agenda when it comes to their buses, something Altro is very happy to provide. But a big part of the strong partnership formed between RIPTA and Altro is the level of customer service we provide.


All of our account managers worldwide are at your disposal to find the best way to meet your needs. They are all immensely experienced in the sector and driven to help you find the best solution for your fleets.

In this case, the perfect solution for RIPTA was heavy duty 2.7mm Altro Transflor Chroma. The tough formulation of Altro Transflor Chroma is more than strong enough to withstand the heavy traffic of a state-wide transit service, with a wide choice of colors to create an aesthetically pleasing travel environment.

“My main concern when picking out flooring for RIPTA buses is quality. The main reason we choose Altro is that it’s been a proven product for us since 2009.” 
Joe Monti
