Williamson County’s Traffic Issue Addressed by Experts

Austin region in Texas has experienced the pressure regarding transport infrastructure just like many other cities in the world. This pressure results from the growing number of people moving to the towns and the changing level of technology that is being incorporated in the transportation industry. People work different shifts and need vehicles to get them to work as need arises.

Companies like Uber have offered their services to supplement the public buses and trains. Roads that were built some decades back are no longer serving the population effectively. Most major highways need expansion to include more lanes. With the coming of autonomous vehicles, even the garages will have to be redesigned.

Stakeholders in the transport and mobility sector met during the 19th year of Austin Business Journal’s annual Williamson County Growth Summit to discuss the solution to the biggest problem that Williamson County has been facing.

According to Crunchbase, among the experts that met include Leander John of Uber Technologies, Mike Heiligenstein of Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, Jared Ficklin (a transport focused transportation designer) and Joseph Kopser founder of Ride Scout, LLC. There is need to build more efficient infrastructure that is technically reliable.

While the idea and the effect that driverless cars will bring to the transport sector dominated the conversation, Heiligenstein maintained that the roads still need to be improved. In his opinion, the inception of the driverless car will be a long and tedious process. In the meantime, he suggested the expansion of U.S Highway 183 and State Highway 290 in Austin. According to the designer, Ficklin, the land use and building codes need to remain more flexible and open to future changes. With automatic cars, the roads will still be needed in good condition, but the garages will change in design and size.

According to John of Uber Technologies, commuters in Austin area can also enjoy transportation to and from the train stations and bus stops using the first and last mile solutions.

Mike Heiligenstein is a graduate of Texas University who has served for over 25 years in the transport sector. He has a well-established career in infrastructural improvement and development, especially in Central Texas. He is currently the executive director of Central Texas Regional Mobility in Austin.

He has overseen planning activities and nodal planning of transport sector to meet the growing population of Austin County. Mike also serves as the president of International Bridge Tunnel and Turnpike Association.

Rick Smith Takes Securus Technologies to New Heights By Acquiring JPay Inc.

Securus Technologies has recently grabbed the headlines by signing a lucrative acquisition agreement to purchase JPay Inc. The enterprise is widely considered to be a top company that specializes in educational and entertainment apps, email and electronic payments to the highly populated prison system across the U.S. Currently operating in 33 prisons, the acquisition is expected to trigger a large increment on the target market with a view of generating profits.

While addressing a congregation of stakeholders and journalists, Rick Smith, the CEO of Securus Technologies, hailed the new acquisition which puts Securus in a unique position of dominating the market for years to come. With such an acquisition, Securus can virtually offer any correctional institution with a tech-based program needed to run a modern penitentiary effectively. JPay has long been touted to become a dominate force in the industry courtesy of its indomitable success. Timing, however, has proven to be an integral component that facilitated such an excellent combination of products and skilled teams. According to Smith, JPay serves as the ultimate choice if you want the best products at the best price while also reducing recidivism.

JPay’s CEO, Ryan Shapiro, echoed his counterpart’s sentiments by emphasizing the company’s commitment to expanding their footprint while also delivering tremendous value to inmates, family relatives and the prison staff. In simpler terms, Securus solely intends on developing innovative products that make a lasting impression on users on a large scale. Such an excellent reputation could not have been possible without the immense contribution of its highly talented team adept at developing products that make penitentiaries more efficient and safer. Moreover, the transition from incarceration to rehabilitation should become a fast process before prisoners can be released.

The benefits of valuing an efficient team cannot be stressed enough. As a token of appreciation, Securus fully intends on running JPay as a subsidiary of Securus while also retaining the current staff to its payroll. However, Securus’ vast resources should come in handy when tweaking minimal changes within the company’s structure.
