Peter Grande

Peter Grande

VP, Business Development

I am committed to improving the quality of life for people of all abilities and creating a barrier free, inclusive future for all to enjoy.

This commitment led me to become co founder of MUVE, a rideshare/dispatching software platform specially designed to create and manage inclusive and sustainable transit systems of the future.

When I learned of the on/off rail technology that MTS is planning, I immediately thought of its use in providing the complete trip service in a public transit system and I had to be a part of it. The prospect of including mobility services for all in an open and efficient public transit experience represents the ultimate goal of universal accessibility for society.

MTS requires a new range of features and capabilities for MUVE, while exploding our addressable market to the general public. The responsibility that lies in creating a platform as complete and seamless as required for a ULRT system is an exciting direction for our team at MUVE and we are always up to the challenge of innovating and leading in this space.

I am thrilled to be part of a company that recognizes the importance of public transit that is fully inclusive and responsive to the needs of the entire community, regardless of their age, race, religion, and ability.
