Hughes currently serves as the marketing and administrative manager for Bis-Man Transit. In this role, she has played an integral role in the agency’s response to COVID-19, as well as community outreach, budgeting, route alterations, customer service, marketing, and mobility management.
Prior to her role at Bis-Man Transit, Hughes worked with AT&T Mobility as a retail store manager, as well as Precision Roadway Services as a traffic safety controller.
Hughes stated, “One of my biggest focuses with public transportation in the community is to reassess the current fixed routes and work with existing riders, operators, and staff to create new routes that will increase ridership.” She also will be working to integrate more usable and reliable technology for both paratransit and fixed route riders.
Hughes is to begin her new position on July 1, 2020.
