Boston’s Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Co. (MBCR) announced veteran railroad official Bonnie Murphy will succeed Hugh J. Kiley Jr. as GM.

A transportation industry executive for more than 30 years, Murphy comes to MBCR from the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) where she served as deputy associate administrator, safety compliance and program implementation.

As GM, Murphy will oversee day-to-day operations and manage the strategic direction for the company, which provides rail service to the more than 140,000 passengers who ride the MBTA commuter rail system each day.

Prior to joining the FRA, Murphy served as the chief operating officer at Trinity Railway Express in Texas. She also oversaw commuter train service in San Diego as senior transportation manager at Amtrak.
