Trip Planner Magazine was born of the cameraderie and exchange of ideas found at transit conferences and is intended to enlighten, inform, and even entertain professionals in the field of urban mass transportation. We take a broad view of transit planning to encompass route structure, customer service, modes, land use and design, marketing and printing materials, service efficiencies, contracting, map making and many other related disciplines that make transit better for passengers, public agencies, and the built environment
Trip Planner Magazine accepts manuscripts for the web edition. Please send them to email@example.com.
Samuel L. Scheib, editor
For shucks and giggles, Scheib’s mother took him and his brother on a bus ride to downtown Tampa when he was ten. Transit was forever after demistyfied and he used transit regularly as a teenager, as a Marine at embassy guard posts in Budapest, Minsk, and Seoul, and in Russia where he studied at the St. Peterburg Conservatory and Moscow State University (you may find two stories on the Moscow Metro on this website).
Scheib earned bachelor’s degrees in music and humanities as an undergraduate and a master’s degree in regional and urban planning all at Florida State University. He was a Florida DOT Transit Fellow during his master’s studies and was hired in 2006 as a transit planner at StarMetro in Tallahassee. Seeing a hole in the transit and planning market of ideas, Scheib founded Trip Planner Magazine in 2008.
