About Us

My name is Anwar M. Farooq and I live near Los Angeles, CA. I have been commuting to work for more than 25 years over the most heavily congested freeways in the World. I have encountered every imaginable traffic gridlock and have seen the worst accidents. While stuck in traffic, I thought of an ideal way to commute and came up with the Rapid Commute System concept.
