We talk with David Block-Schachter, CBO at Transit, about what's happening with their Transit App, and some of its new capabilities, including being able to pay for your trip within the app itself, linking up with ride-hailing companies, and even locating scooters. He shares some of the opportunities and challenges of working with both governmental agencies (Transit Authorities) and private companies to both obtain, and share their data, so that ultimately the user/rider experience is the absolute best it can be. Both Edward and I learned a bunch so we kept the show going an extra 15 minutes. We're sure you will enjoy this interview as much as we did.
