Senior Aviation and Multi-Modal Project Manager

The greatest change to air travel since deregulation is happening on the airport landside and we are not only bearing witness to it but actively engaged in its evolution. TNC's have been an enormous change on the airport landside some describe it as chaotic and disruptive. Others see it as exciting and liberating. The concept of mobility as a service is not too far off into the future and, in many respects, it's simply the next step in the evolution that was kicked off by the TNCs. Autonomous vehicles may not be too far off into the future as well. So what will this look like and how will we get there? Big questions that will take a lot of thought, dialogue and time to figure out. The important point is that we have the ability and responsibility to do all we can to nudge the evolution in the right direction. Since 1966, TranSystems has been providing innovative consulting engineering and architecture services to solve the nation's transportation infrastructure challenges.
