Greater Bridgeport Transit names new CEO

Posted on November 3, 2011

Douglas Holcomb has been selected as CEO of Connecticut-based Greater Bridgeport Transit (GBT) where he has served as planning and service development officer for the past 11 years. Holcomb succeeds Ron Kilcoyne, who left GBT this past July to become GM at Lane Transit District in Eugene, Ore.

The GBT board of commissioners selected Holcomb to lead the organization after a comprehensive search, according to GBT Chairwoman Laurie Goodsell.

Holcomb began his 25-year career in public transportation in Boston, Massachusetts at the Central Transportation Planning Staff, part of the Boston area Metropolitan Planning Organization. Since 1991, Holcomb has been a vigorous advocate for public transportation in Connecticut, through his work with the Greater Hartford Transit District, GBT and through numerous community-based leadership positions.

Holcomb has served on the Connecticut Public transportation Commission and is an active member of the Connecticut Association for Community Transportation, Transit for Connecticut Coalition, the American Institute for Certified Planners and currently serves on the Board of Directors for Leadership Greater Bridgeport.

Greater Bridgeport Transit operates 19 bus routes throughout the Bridgeport region with services extending to Norwalk, Milford and the Valley providing over five million trips each year.
