Dorn to leave FTA for World Bank post

Posted on August 2, 2005

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced Tuesday that Jennifer Dorn will leave her post as head of the FTA. Dorn was nominated by President Bush to serve as United States alternative executive director of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, one of two U.S. representatives to the governing body of the World Bank. As FTA Administrator, Dorn played a central role in overseeing the reconstruction of the transportation infrastructure in Lower Manhattan after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. She also led the development of a nationwide initiative to deliver coordinated transportation services to Americans with disabilities and other special needs. Dorn will depart the FTA pending Senate confirmation of her nomination.
