Our story

GIRO was founded in the 1970s through the work of Jean-Yves Blais, a student at the Université de Montréal, and his professor Jean-Marc Rousseau. Focusing on the task of public transportation schedules, the two founders developed expertise in operational research and modeling. Their work paved the way for the creation of HASTUS and GeoRoute.
