The Lextran Board of Directors and Transdev have worked together to identify Combs after a nationwide search for a new general manager.

The general manager provides leadership, vision, and operational and administrative management for Lextran, which operates a fixed-route bus system and door-to-door paratransit service in Lexington-Fayette County.

Lextran employs nearly 200 people and has an annual operating budget of about 30 million dollars.

“My focus at Lextran has been to continually push toward our mission, ‘We serve people and our community with mobility solutions,’ in all that we do. I am looking forward to continuing that important work while supporting Lextran’s incredible staff,” said Combs.

Combs holds a master’s degree in City and Regional Planning from Clemson University and is a certified planner by the American Planning Association. He also currently serves as Lextran’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Liaison Officer, the Chair of the Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Transportation Technical Coordination Committee, and on the advisory board of Bluegrass Community and Technical College’s Architectural Technology program.
