Joshua Schank of L.A. Metro

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority is one of the largest transit agencies in the United States.  The nearly 1,500 square mile area it serves is also famous worldwide for its traffic congestion.  As L.A. Metro’s Chief Innovation Officer, Joshua Schank is charged with finding and implementing new technologies and partnerships that will make Southern California transportation more efficient and livable.  In this lively conversation with Mat Kaplan, Joshua talks about the Authority’s unique approaches and capabilities that make him optimistic about L.A.’s future.  Joshua was a featured speaker at the METRANS-hosted 2016 meeting of the Council of University Transportation Centers.
