Chief Executive Officer
Our mission is to create seamless mobility for all. In our first ten years we created America's first live regional transit map, the first bus tracking mobile app, and were awarded a transit innovation award by the White House. Public transit should be the first and most convenient choice for people to travel within their community. We are creating the technology that will enable transit to become that choice and we are working to change the future of transportation.
