Founder & CEO at Go Metro
Justin is the founder of GoMetro, a mobile startup based in Cape Town. GoMetro makes commuting on transit awesome again by connecting transit operators with their commuters. Our multi-platform app gives commuters tailored information on real-time arrivals and departures, current locations of vehicles, early notifications of operational breakdowns and travel disruptions. The platform then also allows operators to communicate intelligently with riders.
Justin is a civil engineer by background, with a Masters Degree in Transportation Engineering from the University of Stellenbosch. He designed and built roads and related physical infrastructure all over South Africa – until he realized that a sustainable city system relies on vibrant public transportation systems, and not on more tarmac or lanes. This led to him developing Mobi.lity – a design concept focussed on "Infostructure" - the informational layer above the physical infrastructure of Smarter Cities - influencing behaviour and decisions.
Justin lives in Cape Town, South Africa, and spends his free time with his wife and son - enjoying the vistas of one of the most beautiful places in the world.View All Mentors
