New Chief Mobility Officer Previews 2020 ATL Roadmap
ATLANTA – At its Board Meeting today, the Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority (ATL) Board of Directors moved forward with the annual election of its Vice Chair, received updates on the proposed ATL 2020 Strategic Road Map and the regional bus stop signage implementation project.

The Board re-elected Clayton County Commissioner and District 10 Representative, Felicia Franklin Warner as Vice Chair. “The board is pleased to have Commissioner Franklin-Warner continue to serve as our Vice Chair and we look forward to her continued leadership contributions as we work towards a more seamless and connected transit network,” said Charlie Sutlive, ATL Board Chair.

Adelee Le Grand, the new Chief Mobility Officer of the ATL, previewed the proposed 2020 ATL Strategic Roadmap. The ATL Roadmap provides a high-level framework and guide that will build upon the ATL’s guiding principles and the Atlanta Regional Transit Plan (ARTP) and Audit. The ATL Roadmap will address a series of strategic priorities and actions for future planning in 2020. Ms. Le Grand stated that a key component of the ATL roadmap is listening and learning from regional transit operators and she has begun early discussions with key transit stakeholders to gain their feedback.

“As we kick off 2020, it is important that we learn from other transit providers on how the ATL can bring added value and what are the common needs shared amongst our partner agencies,” stated Adelee Le Grand, Chief Mobility Officer. “We already know that two key focus areas are the need to streamline the transit planning process and our collective goal of improving the customer experience through project selection and implementation.”

Executive Director Chris Tomlinson and Chief Financial Officer Monique Simmons gave an update on the amended FY 2020 and FY 2021 Governor’s Budget Recommendation. Additionally, Executive Director Tomlinson presented updated information on the implementation of new regional bus signage.
