Erik Leach – MARTA

This was not something Erik Leach saw coming down the tracks, but he’s delighted to be part of it. As director project management and construction for the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, Leach is overseeing upgrades to nearly 40 MARTA light rail stations spread over four rail lines.

Jeremy Smith – Capital District Transportation Authority

It’s not a Japanese bullet train, but employees at the Capital District Transit Authority are proud of upstate New York’s second Bus Rapid Transit line that hit the road last winter with a fleet of shiny blue and silver buses moving riders around Albany and surrounding communities. Known as the River Corridor Bus Rapid Transit […]

Jose Morales – FlashParking

The equation may appear simple when designing a new parking garage. But while it’s still about how many spaces are needed and how traffic flows inside, 21st century variables are now part of the math. As Jose Morales of FlashParking notes, even the basic steps of getting a time-stamped ticket from a dispenser and then […]

Warren Byrd – KAR Global

Glenn Buntin – Schneider

Days on the road hauling a 53-foot trailer get long. Whether it’s passing under pines in New England, through the sky-wide expanse of the prairies, or down a mountain pass with a brake-busting descent, it can take a lot of drive to keep driving. On the roads crisscrossing the country, its common to see Omaha-orange […]

Tim Andersen – C&S Companies

There are many metaphors related to seeing colors: Everything is golden when all goes well; red if you’re angered; green when financial success is well in hand. As C&S Companies grows across the U.S., Tim Andersen sees teal—an emerging business paradigm introduced in 2014 by author Frédéric Laloux, that defines success through better self-organization and self-management. For more than 50 years, Syracuse-based C&S has provided design-build services in upstate New York, taking projects from […]

Keith Metzger – Subaru of America

With most Subaru of America personnel working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, the headquarters were less hustle and bustle when Keith Metzger spoke with Blueprint in May. Senior executives and people deemed essential to the operation, however, still come by daily to the gleaming 250,000-square-foot facility in Camden, New Jersey, as does Metzger, director of […]

Aaron Doubt – Uber Advanced Technologies Group

Imagine a future where a ride share service picks up passengers at an airport or after a night on the town and takes them to a hotel or home—only no one’s driving. While it eliminates any need for awkward idle chitchat, the passengers are instead left to wonder how the car knows where to go […]

Matthew Johnston – TI Fluid Systems

Not long after Matthew Johnston joined TI Fluid Systems in 2010, the company’s CEO Bill Kozyra embarked upon a project to dramatically improve its workplace, believing a new corporate office would have a powerful and positive effect on employees.

Andrew Mathers – Transportation Research Center Inc.

Wouldn’t it be cool to work at a vehicle test track? One where automated vehicles negotiate realistic highways, traffic lights, high-speed intersections and an 80-acre city? Andrew Mathers, director of facilities for Transportation Research Center Inc., doesn’t just work there. He’s helping build it. In its latest innovation, Transportation Research Center, an independent vehicle testing […]
