THE FUTURE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Excited to be one step closer to having my sixth book published 📕 -
“The New Future of Public Transportation”
Just wrapped up reviewing and approving the editor’s comments for all thirty chapters and reuploading them to the publisher SAE International. Fun to re-read so much great content from leading transit executives and experts on our industry 🚍🚉🌏
Next we work on the cover design and they typeset the book for my final review.
As of now the tentative eBook publication date is 4/12. The print book is scheduled to arrive at the publisher’s warehouse on 5/30.
I am planning the global
book launch for the World Passenger Festival in Vienna, Austria in late June!
Let me know if you’d like to discuss being a part of the book tour - with a book launch party, reading or signing at your event, conference booth or agency/company (virtual or in person).

New Children's Picture Book
Inside the wonderful world of Public Transportation - Children discover its history, how public transportation has improved our world and what's next!
Beautifully illustrated pictures and fun facts will enthrall kids ages 5-15 with stories of how the first steam locomotive "Tom Thumb" lost its big race with a horse - when it broke down and how cable cars in San Francisco move up those steep hills. Each page brings children to a different era and type of public mobility from horse drawn carriages to the first subways, buses, light rail vehicles and mag lev trains. Along the way they can picture themselves riding these fun vehicles and traveling to their destinations. Then children see how the future will be amazing with autonomous vehicles, Hyperloop and Vertical Take Off and Landing Aircraft (VTOL) shuttling them to a new age of public transportation.
Public/private schools and home-schoolers can use this book as a way to introduce children to the important world of public transportation - its history, present and future. Share with your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews what you do for a living in public transportation - whether you work as a bus operator, mechanic or administrator. Using this book you can explain to them how to ride and use public transportation as a means of mobility or even a possible future career.
