Arya has his eyes set on the future of transportation. He understands that in order to improve our transportation systems, you must have a creative, yet implementable, vision. To bring these visions to life, he applies his expertise in transportation infrastructure and technology. He drives growth through his leadership, teamwork, execution, and innovative business models.
Arya is a big advocate for smart cities—he’s worked extensively to integrate our community-building expertise with technology provided by partners. In his position, he’s developed service delivery models that will help accelerate the adoption of new technology and managed several smart city projects in California. Arya was also an early champion for smart mobility (connected and autonomous vehicles) in North America.
Outside of work, Arya enjoys soccer and mountain biking. He loves to travel, though he’s particularly fond of Italy (and over the years he’s learned to speak the language). Otherwise, you might find him reading about international affairs or the blending of high technology with our transportation landscape.
