Serber

Central Indiana
Regional
Transportation
Authority
(CIRTA)

named John Serber as the
new executive director.
Serber brings 28 years of
experience in both the public
and private sectors and has
worked with transit authorities
throughout the country. Key
factors in the search committee's choice were his experience with identifying and
securing funding, using technology to increase efficiency
and collaborating with service
providers to put money into
services rather than overhead.
" We were impressed with his
combination of high-level and
in-the-weeds knowledge of
transit, " said Board Member
Mark Richards.
