Rahul Kumar

VP of Revenue at TransLoc

Profile

Over the 17 years Rahul has spent in public transportation, he has been a part of many firsts: from designing and launching suburban Los Angeles’ first Bus Rapid Transit to launching the first commercial autonomous public transport fleet, Rahul has seen this industry grow from operationally-focused to digitally-driven. 

With an educational background in building organizations and marketing new innovations specifically in public transport, Rahul found his first home working at the second largest public transportation agency in Los Angeles. As Director of Planning, he designed many of the routes and services that operate in and out of LA today. After a little over a half decade on the public side, Rahul moved on to leading the commercial team for a large, multi-national transportation operator working in both the traditional public transit space and new “on-demand” modes that are now occupied by the likes of Uber and Lyft.

In 2015, Rahul moved to Paris, France to really focus on new innovative products for the public transportation space. In under two years, he built a team focused on disruptive innovation, specifically in the areas of driverless public transportation, mobile ticketing, and big data platforms. These were areas that hadn’t really been focused on in the public transit space prior.Rahul joined TransLoc with hopes to build upon the accomplishments of the past while learning and growing within a company that has a people-first culture.
