TRC Names Lukas Foljanty As Director Of Business Development In Europe

The Routing Company (TRC), a global on-demand vehicle routing and management platform partnering with cities to power public transit, recently announced it has named Lukas Foljanty as Director of Business Development, Europe. He joins TRC with over a decade of experience in the on-demand transit, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), and public transport sectors.

Based in Berlin, Germany, Foljanty will lead and expand TRC’s European Business Development under industry veteran Dick Alexander, who joined TRC as Vice President of Business Development in early 2022. His counterpart and fellow on-demand transit expert, Stephen Kuban, will continue leading TRC’s business development in North America and South America.

Foljanty is a shared mobility enthusiast, recognized for his thought leadership in the advancement of demand responsive mobility (DRT) through his quarterly online reports on the state, outlook of the on-demand transit industry, and his Global On-Demand Ridepooling Map. The latter aggregates all on-demand transit deployments in one place (a Google map).

“Lukas has the industry experience, proven track record, and forward-thinking vision that is a perfect complement to the TRC team,” Alexander said. “We are thrilled to welcome him and look forward to him leading and expanding our business in the European market. We have built great momentum from Scotland to Andorra, and with Lukas on board, we will continue welcoming new countries and customers to TRC’s European footprint.”

Foljanty holds an engineering degree in Urban and Regional Planning from Technical University Berlin, in Germany. He also completed executive leadership training at the Quadriga University of Applied Sciences.

“I am thrilled to join The Routing Company – where my passion and extensive DRT experience can be leveraged to further the company’s mission in Europe,” Foljanty said.

TRC’s Pingo platform — powering the Drive Pingo™ and Ride Pingo™ apps and the Pingo Dashboard™ management tool — has delivered over 200,000 rides to date. To learn more, visit theroutingcompany.com/products.
