Tim McGuckin is the Executive Director of MaaS America, an organization he founded to advance a MaaS framework that reflects America's history, culture and geography. During 2+ decades in the transport community, Tim’s roles at private companies such as A-to-B USA, GeoToll and Leidos, confirmed to him the importance of financial motives and incentives as drivers of the innovation needed to create services people want.
His years at non-profits such as OmniAir Consortium – a V2X testing and certification group which he founded – ITSA and IBTTA gave him a grasp of the perspectives and needs of public sector operators, as well as an ability to marshal and build effective cooperative efforts.
Tim’s interest in urban systems began during his stint as a historic building renovation contractor in downtown Philadelphia. He took that interest to Virginia Tech where he earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in Urban & Regional Planning.
