Bridging the Gap: Tom Jury's Vision for Jury Transit Transforms Transit Maintenance with Innovative Solutions
Tom Jury, a long time transit professional with a keen eye for innovation, recognized a glaring gap in the transit industry and set out to revolutionize it by founding Jury Transit. He had observed that maintenance departments within the industry were struggling with a lack of actionable data concerning their repair times and processes, leading to inefficiencies and a lack of insight into how they were performing against national standards.
