OUR STORY

How Blaised Was Formed

Blaise was started by a small group of transit-loving engineers in 2018, wanting to improve transportation options for all riders, while making transit better for our cities and planet.

As lifelong transit riders, they lived the inefficiencies of public transit on a daily basis, but maintained a conviction that transit was the most sustainable way forward for people transportation.

They started Blaise to equip municipalities, cities, transit agencies and transit operators with the state-of-the-art technology they needed to optimize their operations and provide a better experience for transit riders. Better yet, these on-demand transit tools are easy enough for anyone in the world to use and set-up their own intelligent transit system. They used their background in engineering and design to make it easier than ever to offer a more cost-effective, sustainable, and accessible transit system.

Their mission was to revolutionize the transit industry and transform it to be one viable for the future. They continue to do this today, through continuous innovation and making a difference one transit community at a time.

Made with ❤️ in Canada

While Blaise works with transit agencies across the globe, our Blaise HQ is proudly based in Montreal, Canada. We have a remote team spread across the country!
