People Who Move People is a collection of written stories about trailblazers and visionaries of public transit, which is a world that appears incomprehensible to those living outside it. Respecting the many moving parts within a public transit operation, People who Move People presents a cross-section of those who contribute to the field—from bus driver to executive. When possible, interviews are conducted in person while riding public transit. The series strives to capture the essence not only of a career in public transit but the life behind it.
The idea for People Who Move People was conceived of during a chance meeting between Laura Lee and Bahman Irvani, CEO of RouteMatch, which has endowed the initiative.
