Baulsir joined The T in November, 2014 as Tex Rail project manager with more than 30 years experience overseeing large transit projects, including rail development, construction, rail facilities and Bus Rapid Transit. He also has managed transit system procurement, operations and maintenance facilities, safety and security.

“Bob Baulsir’s arrival as Tex Rail project manager has given us an experienced full time staff member devoted to the daily management of the construction  project that will build on the recent significant progress The T has made toward achieving the 2018 start up for Tex Rail,” said Paul Ballard, president and CEO of The T.

Baulsir retired last year as general manager of administration for the Nashville Metropolitan Transit Authority and of the Regional Transportation Authority of Middle Tennessee.
