Josh Bigelow founded Syncromatics in 2006 with a simple goal: Make Transit Work. The Syncromatics Intelligent Transit Platform provides passenger counting, dispatch automation and real-time analytics to transit bus agencies nationwide with the goal of considerably increasing the efficiency of transit. ecognizing early on how important transit was to the larger goal of urban sustainability, Josh entered Syncromatics in the 2007 Clean Tech Open, and won the Lexus Transportation Prize on the heels of Syncromatics' first successful deployment at UC San Diego. The prize included $100K in cash and services and an introduction to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. A successful pilot with LADOT led to a multimillion dollar deployment of the Syncromatics system on the entire LADOT fleet--309 buses. Josh is a longtime Los Angeles resident and avid sustainable transportation enthusiast, having spoken on numerous clean-tech panels since 2007.
