In addition, Dawn Distler, who most recently served as operations manager, has been promoted to GM, operations and maintenance for MTA and RTA with Eric Beyer, Easy Ride manager, now taking on added responsibilities as Metro Council liaison in addition to overseeing the EasyRide program, which is an employer-supported and funded transportation benefits program for the employees of area businesses, universities and governmental agencies.
