Previously, Ross worked on several projects in Auckland’s city centre, aimed at accommodating Auckland’s new bus network as well as future growth in public transport services in the future. 

Liz McGregor, VLC’s State Director (VIC & ACT) is excited to have Ross on board. “Having worked with Ross on various projects, I know first-hand what an asset he will be for VLC’s clients. His depth of knowledge and experience plus his passion for transport planning, particularly public transport, is evident. We are very fortunate he has chosen to join VLC. 

Equally, Ross is pleased with his move. “I’m excited to join VLC’s dynamic, capable team and working to solve some of Australia’s most challenging transport problems.” 

As a Principal Consultant, Ross is responsible for leading public transport planning projects in cities across Australia. Hailing originally from the USA, Ross has a Bachelor of Arts (AB) in Russian with a minor in business from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
