52: ITS Needs a Message Makeover - An INTERSECT19 Special with Krishna Desai, Cubic Transportation Systems

The transportation industry does a great job of talking to each other. However, it doesn't do such a great job of talking to people outside of the industry. Why does it need to be good at both? Krishna Desai, the Global Marketing Manager for Cubic Transportation Systems, shares with POLICYSMART why it's so critical for the transportation and ITS industries to become better at speaking to others. Some of the reasons include the need to recruit great Millennial talent, to share with private companies what our real transportation needs are, and to explain clearly why important projects need funding. We bring you another special episode on this second day of INTERSECT19! Tune in to find out more reasons why ITS needs a message makeover and how the industry can go about doing it.

48: Back to School! An Algorithm Saves Boston $5 Million on Its School Buses with Emma Coleman, Route 50

It's back-to-school week for students across the country! Most of us would consider this bad news, but the Boston Public School District gives us something to smile and marvel about. The school district went from spending $2,000 a year per student—just on school buses—to trimming a total of $5 million. All done by an algorithm. That's not all: buses are driving 1 million fewer miles a year and cutting 20,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions per day. Want to hear about the results and how Boston achieved them?
