About the MAAC
The MaaS America Advisory Committee (MAAC) is an all-volunteer group that provides strategic advice to MaaS America on matters ranging from association policies, programs and events to communications and operations. The Committee is informal in nature which gives the group greater flexibility in structure, management and unvarnished advice compared to a formal Board of Directors to be established later in 2019.
The MAAC is an assembly of seasoned mobility industry thought leaders who provide an incomparable wealth of skills and wisdom to MaaS America. “We are truly fortunate to have access to the MAAC’s experience and mentorship as we continue to define programs that guide the growth of Mobility as a Service. Their knowledge and innovative thinking are transforming what began as a concept into a solid and positive force in the MaaS community,” said Tim McGuckin, a transportation industry veteran and MaaS America’s founder.
“How we approach transportation is evolving,” states Randy Iwasaki, Executive Director of the Contra Costa Transportation Authority. “We are excited to be part of an organization that is changing the dialogue about mobility and are looking forward to not only being involved in the discussion, but also delivering future solutions.”
