Texas transit executive vice president resigns

Posted on March 19, 2008

Austin, Texas-based Capital Metro Executive Vice President and COO Dwight Ferrell has resigned. His last day at Capital Metro is March 31.

Ferrell accepted the position of deputy general manager and COO with the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority(MARTA). He assumes his new role in April and will be responsible for overseeing bus, rail, and paratransit operations and maintenance; infrastructure; and MARTA's police force.  

“My tenure at Capital Metro has been a rewarding experience," Ferrell said. "I’m proud of both the accomplishments of this organization as well as the direction it is heading. I am certainly looking forward to the new challenges and responsibilities at the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, but it is not without some sadness that I leave so many talented, friendly people who make up the Capital Metro family."  

Ferrell has 28 years of transit experience, having held positions in Texas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania and Georgia. He is nationally recognized within the industry, serving in leadership positions with APTA and the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials.
