The L.A. County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is looking to develop a ‘’micro-transit’’ program. This pilot program based on ridesharing would take passengers from one destination to another at a low cost.

Joshua L. Schank is the first-ever Chief Innovation Officer for Los Angeles County Metro and former president and CEO of the Eno Center for Transportation, a non-profit foundation with the mission of improving transportation policy and leadership.

Dr. Schank holds a Ph.D. in Urban Planning from Columbia University, a Master’s degree in City Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a B.A. in Urban Studies from Columbia University. He has worked on federal and state transportation policy for over a decade, most notably spending six years as Transportation Policy Advisor to Senator Hillary Clinton for the development of the transportation authorization bill (SAFETEA-LU).

Soon, 70% of the world’s population will live in cities. Dr. Schank’s extensive work in transportation policy and planning will help us better understand how urban areas will develop to meet the ever-increasing transportation needs of their citizens. Dr. Schank has authored many publications, including “All Roads Lead to Congress: The $300 Billion Fight Over Highway Funding,” co-authored with Costas Panagopoulos and published by CQ Press in 2007.
