As BMW geared up to launch its new car sharing program here in Seattle, BMW Vice President for Government and External Affairs, Frank Breust (who is also PacTrans newest external advisory board member), met with our director Dr. Yinhai Wang. The meeting, which also included Vikram Jandhyala, UW Vice Provost for Innovation, happened at the car-sharing event on Friday, April 8.
This meeting marks the beginning of what promises to be a strong relationship between PacTrans and BMW. Mr. Breust and Dr. Wang sought ways we can collaborate in terms of research interests in transportation and workforce development. There will be more meetings planned ahead as we talk about BMW’s participation in our workshops and our Annual Regional Transportation Conference. Thanks Mr. Breust and welcome to our team!
