With offices located in the City of Lowell, Massachusetts – just 30 miles north of Boston – HBSS Connect Corp. provides solutions for the U.S. transportation industry built around state-of-the-art technology.

For nearly 20 years, HBSS has developed and provided software for diverse transportation organizations, including statewide agencies funded by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), transportation brokerages, regional transit authorities, and private as well as nonprofit providers.  HBSS resolves the unique challenges that differing demographics pose for the transportation industry, and excels at responding to these differences with efficient, customized solutions.

HBSS has pioneered Brokered Transportation Technology which powers large call centers across the country for managing coordinated transportation across different government departments such as Center for Medicaid Services (CMS), Department of Developmentally Disabled, Special Education, Early Intervention, Council on Aging Services, Adult Day Health Transportation and more recently Veterans Transportation. The technology created, offers novel concepts and methods by which several states are saving millions of dollars in transportation costs.

HBSS in partnership with MART have designed MOVET – a state wide Veterans Transportation Coordination system, under a grant from FTA, covering over 350 Veterans Services officers across the states as well as dozens of VA facilities to avail all available public, non-profit, and private transportation for the benefit

The company’s resources include a highly qualified team of nearly 100 who provide clients the right mix of technical and business skills, as well as superior knowledge of HBSS’ software solutions.  In addition to our technical expertise, the company employs subject matter experts who understand evolving passenger demands.

HBSS has been referred to as “the best kept secret in the public transit software industry,” but our impressive winning record in 2017 has the industry talking.  Our recent statewide project awards by Georgia DOT and Mississippi DOT will see our cloud-based QRyde products rolled out to more than 145 transit operations across the two states.   We have competed head-to-head against the industry’s “leaders” and emerged as the vendor of choice in 2017.

A fresh new combination of ease-of-use, on-line support chat capabilities, and innovative on-line training programs, has enabled HBSS to offer its terrific new solutions at an affordable price.

It is a very exciting time at HBSS.   Our team takes great pride in developing the coolest, most innovative technologies in the industry, and we are dedicated to delivering a great customer experience.


QRyde was born to make the current transportation systems far more efficient, by providing a full-suite of technology to all stakeholders of a transportation, irrespective of their ability to invest 100s of thousands of dollars.

HBSS’ vision for QRyde is to enable communities to improve their economic well-being by better managing the transportation needs of its members for education, employment and healthcare.

HBSS’ mission with QRyde is to provide technology to communities and a network of providers, so that the members get low cost rides to their destinations.

Our deep expertise was developed by working together with these communities and the providers who serve them — to develop real solutions that help underserved communities and also benefit local providers. Then, we evolved and expanded into demand response and paratransit efforts to help these communities and their local providers.

Our people-friendly technology is not only empowering government transportation agencies but also independent transportation providers next-door that operate small fleets of vehicles.
