TIMS director wins national recognition
Jody Pressley, project leader for the Transportation Information Management System, is featured in the November issue of School Bus Fleet magazine as one of “14 Phenomenal Women in School Transportation.”
TIMS is a collaboration among the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute, where Pressley works, the N.C. Department of Public Instruction and the Institute for Transportation Research and Education at N.C. State University. TIMS is a system of computer-assisted bus routing and scheduling to help school districts manage school transportation.
