Bill is a prolific innovator in the transit industry. His 35-year career has focused on optimizing scheduling performance, and he holds 7 patents covering the algorithms that govern how scheduling engines operate. Bill was the founder of StrataGen Systems, which designed and deployed the ADA paratransit scheduling engine used in over 40 cities in North America, including New York, Los Angeles, and Boston. This engine revolutionized ride planning by combining paratransit with fixed-route service into an integrated ‘intermodal’ capability.
Bill continues his industry thought-leadership today as Routematch’s AI Innovator. He leads research and development of the next-generation ‘Waye’ scheduling engine, which uses artificial intelligence and data-mining of fleet performance to provide groundbreaking improvements to on-time performance and customer service, while enhancing scheduling efficiency and cost effectiveness.
