Ryan Larsen was named as president of Veolia's new IntelliRide division. The announcement was made this week by Veolia's CEO Mark Joseph.  

IntelliRide's mission is to improve the quality of paratransit, medical services and other shared-ride human services, while reducing cost, according to the company.

The service partners with transit authorities, human service agencies, and private health providers to seamlessly integrate classic ADA fleets and flexible fleets (taxis, vans, etc.) and rigorously manage their performance. IntelliRide utilizes innovative technology, business processes and real-time mobility management to bring clients increased accountability and service quality at a lower cost.

"Ryan has expertise in the paratransit, medical and human services transportation and innovative technology sectors that will enable us to offer our customers enhanced mobility management to improve quality and reduce costs," said Joseph.

His expertise and passion for blending paratransit operations with cutting edge technology is a great fit for Veolia's IntelliRide, company officials said.
