About Me

Justin doesn’t have a million years of experience in digital and mobile - he is only 28 years old and a civil engineer by background. Justin has 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 GoMetro - the only company that is able to collect, visualize and distribute information on public transport in emerging economies - with the aim of making Africa's public transport ready for the 21st century.
