In His Own Words: Chris Cochran, Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority


Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority serves the region west of Tampa with 37 routes, 200 vehicles, and a service area of 600 square miles.

Making planning tools more accessible within an agency is sometimes the quickest way to improve service in a community. We recently caught up with Chris Cochran, Senior Planner at Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority in St. Petersburg, FL, to hear how Remix has done this to modernize the agency’s approach to scenario planning.

“What Remix has done has really streamlined the process for us,” Cochran said. “It’s really an ideal tool at the intersection of GIS and scheduling.”

“I don’t see ever us going back to doing it the way we were before.”
