Questions for June's Book Club Contest: "Seamless Transit"

For the June 2019 Book Club selection, TransportiCA has chosen the S-P-U-R r-e-p-o-r-t, "Seamless Transit: How to make Bay Area public transit function like one rational, easy-to-use system," by Ratna Amin and Sara Barz.

With every month's selection, TransportiCA provides three questions, and if you send us all three correct responses, by the end of the month, and your name is drawn, you will win our prize.  June's winner receives a $50 SPUR gift membership. (A "gift membership" is when one person buys another membership for someone else, as a gift; this is a staple in the nonprofit administrative and development world.)

Contest questions for Seamless Transit are:
1) Amin was given what major award last year?
2) Among her many research interests, Barz is particularly interested in using technology, for what purpose?
3) Amin and Barz share what degree, and from which institution?


Thank you for your interest in the Book Club, and best of luck with the contest!


No purchase is necessary, as questions are not taken directly from the publication, but from respective technical information, publicity, and/or the author's professional lives.  To send in your response, submit via TransportiCA's "Contact Form" on the front-page (bottom left), sending your name, email address and answers.  The deadline for submission is 23:59, Sunday, 30 June 2019.
