Bohlinger joins Parsons Brinckerhoff as a principal

Posted on January 14, 2014

Linda Bohlinger has been named a principal consultant in the strategic consulting group of Parsons Brinckerhoff.

In her new position, Bohlinger will advise the firm’s transportation clients, drawing on her nationally recognized expertise in project development, funding, and policy, including alternative project delivery, value capture, congestion pricing, and public-private partnerships. She will be based in the firm’s Los Angeles office.

Bohlinger joins Parsons Brinckerhoff following a 36-year career during which she held executive positions in both the public and private sectors. Most recently she was a VP with an international engineering firm, leading its national management consulting practice. Prior to that position she served as Executive Director of South Florida’s Tri-County Commuter Rail Authority (Tri-Rail), where she secured a $327 million federal full funding grant agreement for Tri-Rail’s double track program.

In her 15-year tenure with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA), Bohlinger rose to become LACMTA’s interim chief executive, with operational, construction, planning, and fiscal responsibility for a $3 billion budget, 8,000 employees, and a 13-member board. At LACMTA she secured more than $2.4 billion in federal full funding grant agreements for the Metro Red Line Subway.  

Bohlinger’s earlier public service career influenced major infrastructure programs across the state of California. As the Deputy Director for Transit Development for the California Transportation Commission, she started the Commission’s first five-year program of rail transit guideway projects and assisted in increasing state legislative support from $10 million to $100 million per year.

As the Manager of Highway and Transportation Systems Management Programs for the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission, she directed the development of the Commission’s $2.2 billion capital improvement programs for state highways, rail transit, and local roadways. She also held key management roles for the Sacramento Area Council of Governments and for the Southern California Association of Governments in systems planning and programming of regional and local projects.

Bohlinger received a master of public administration degree from the University of Southern California and a B.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She serves as Chair of the North American Transit Services Association and is a former executive committee member of the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), and immediate past chair of the APTA Foundation. She is a member of the California Transit Association and the Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS).

She has garnered leadership awards for her contributions to the industry including the Book of Leaders Award, Miami Today; Woman of the Year Award, Los Angeles Chapter of the Women’s Transportation Seminar; Outstanding Leadership Award, California Transit Association; and Woman of the Year Award, Sacramento Chapter of WTS.
