L.A. Metro’s Snoble to retire

Posted on December 17, 2008

Roger Snoble, CEO of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), said that he will retire once a successor is named and on board.

Snoble has led Metro for seven years, garnering top national awards for excellence. He also played a key role in securing the passage of Measure R in November, which instituted a new half-cent sales tax to fund a comprehensive package of new rail, bus and street, and highway improvements in the county over the next 30 years.

“After 43 years of public service in the transit industry, I think this is an opportune time to move on and pass the baton to another executive who will insure the implementation of Measure R,” Snoble said. “I did a lot of soul-searching and decided it’s in the best interest of the agency to have an executive on board soon who can commit the next four to five years in guiding the development of dozens of critical transit and highway projects that will be funded by the new sales tax, which will be collected starting next July.”
