The Northern Arizona Intergovernmental Public Transportation Authority (NAIPTA) Board of Directors announced today their selection of NAIPTA Deputy GM Erika Mazza to serve as the organization’s next CEO/GM.

Mazza will succeed Jeff Meilbeck, who has served as the head of Flagstaff’s transit agency for more than 20 years. He started with Coconino County’s Pine Country Transit and led the evolution to what is now the Mountain Line Transit system serving nearly 2.5 million riders a year.

Prior to joining NAIPTA nearly seven years ago, Mazza was the human services planning & policy manager for the City of Boulder and the housing planning & policy manager for the City of Flagstaff. She also served as a lecturer in Northern Arizona University’s (NAU) planning department. Mazza is currently on the board of directors for the Flagstaff Metropolitan Planning Organization, American Public Transportation Association and Flagstaff Leadership Program.

The NAIPTA Board is scheduled to consider the contract at their September meeting with an anticipated start date on October 1, 2018.

NAIPTA is the transit agency in northern Arizona operating the Mountain Line, Mountain Lift and Mountain Link systems in Flagstaff. NAIPTA also coordinates services with Campus Shuttle Service at NAU.
