Jeremiah Trnka

Director, GoMentum Station 

Jeremiah joined the autonomous industry in 2018 in an effort to democratize access to transportation. After earning his racing stripes on the streets of San Francisco testing Cruise Automation’s self-driving vehicles, he transitioned into low-speed self-driving shuttles and helped launch the Olli Fleet Challenge at Sacramento State in 2019. Jeremiah quickly demonstrated his knack for operationalizing systems and was asked to build Olli’s Operator Training program. After helping launch new deployments across the United States, Saudi Arabia, Italy and at GoMentum, Jeremiah was laid off in 2020 as the world ground to a halt. When asked to join the GoMentum team in 2021, Jeremiah was excited by the opportunity to have a larger impact on the autonomous industry, and further his mission of bringing accessible, affordable, convenient transportation options to everyone, everywhere, at any time.
