Yale Wong is Doctoral Candidate and Research Analyst at the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS): Australian Key Centre in Transport Management at the University of Sydney Business School. Yale’s research focus encompasses three core facets in future mobility, transport contracts and bus operations. A major area of work for Yale is to market test the mobility as a service (MaaS) proposition with the aim to understand what the community demands and businesses are willing to provide. As part of this, Yale won the David Willis Prize (2018) for pioneering work using stated choice methods to identify the structure of broker/aggregator mobility contracts. Yale has also received the ITLS Research Prize (2018) and was selected amongst a competitive pool as Youth Ambassador (2019) representing Australia at the 26th Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress in Singapore. In addition, Yale undertakes a number of advisory and consultancy projects with clients ranging from bus operators to industry associations, vehicle suppliers and local government. Having previously worked in bus operations with experience in network planning and service development, Yale continues to be called upon regularly by the bus industry in his now strategic capacity looking to the future of the industry in an era of disruption and change.
