About Schaller Consulting

Schaller Consulting offers expertise in transportation policy, economic and statistical analysis, performance metrics, public engagement and market research. Bruce Schaller, Principal of Schaller Consulting, is a widely recognized expert in these fields, with over three decades of experience working for government, for-profit and non-profit entities.

Bruce Schaller recently completed seven years as a senior official in the New York City Department of Transportation, where he led two divisions in the agency's development and implementation of innovative, world-class programs on street design, traffic management, pricing and parking policy, bus rapid transit and performance measurement.

Previous to his service at NYCDOT, his consulting practice was retained by local governments, transit and airport authorities in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, San Jose, Austin, Laredo, Rochester (NY) and Ottawa, Canada and in the Los Angeles, Boston, Dallas and Washington DC areas.

Bruce Schaller has been cited by the New York Times as "an expert on transportation." NY1 News called him "one of New York's foremost transportation experts." The Washington Post cited him as a "nationally recognized expert in the cab business." The Financial Times of London named his New York City Taxicab Fact Book the "indispensable" guide to the NYC taxicab industry.

Schaller Consulting focuses on urban transportation issues: Public transportation, personal auto travel and taxicab and livery regulation. Our work cuts across modal boundaries to focus on customers as well as the various transportation modes and providers. We have a particular focus on developing and executing integrated planning and public engagement processes to ensure that policies and programs are both effective and broadly supported among key affected parties.
