About the Author

William Lieberman was born and raised in Winthrop, Mass. His fascination with the town's railroad lore led him to a career in transportation planning. He received his bachelor's degree at Northeastern University and his master's at the University of North Carolina. For almost fifty years, Bill has been engaged by transportation consulting firms and public agencies. The latter include the transit systems in Portland (OR), San Diego and San Francisco. He considers himself fortunate to have followed the advice to "choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life." Bill and his family live in San Francisco and make regular pilgrimages back to Boston.
