|Bruce Schaller, Principal of Schaller Consulting, is a widely recognized expert in new mobility and for-hire services, public transit and urban traffic. He is the author of widely-cited reports assessing how new services such as Uber and Lyft have improved mobility and raised concerns about their impacts on traffic and transit in U.S. cities and developing prescriptions for public policy. Mr. Schaller has consulted to government, for-profit and non-profit organizations throughout North America. Most recently, he served as Deputy Commissioner for Traffic and Planning at the New York City Department of Transportation, where he led the agency’s widely-recognized innovations in street design, traffic management, parking policy, bus rapid transit and performance measurement. He also led NYCDOT’s efforts on congestion pricing in 2007-08.
