Holcomb Promoted to CEO in Bridgeport, CT

Douglas Holcomb, an 11-year employee of Greater Bridgeport Transit (GBT) in Bridgeport, CT, has been promoted to chief executive officer. His previous position was planning and service development officer.

Holcomb succeeds Ron Kilcoyne, who left GBT in July to become general manager of the Lane Transit District in Eugene, OR.

“We’re very pleased to have someone of Doug’s caliber to lead GBT,” said Laurie Goodsell, chairwoman of the GBT Board of Commissioners. “Public transportation is becoming an increasingly important part of the job creation, economic development, and sustainability initiatives in our region, and Doug’s background, experience, and commitment to the region will be a tremendous asset in expanding mobility options for the region’s residents.”

Holcomb began his 25-year career in public transportation in Boston at the Central Transportation Planning Staff, part of the Boston area Metropolitan Planning Organization. He also worked for the Greater Hartford Transit District in Hartford, CT.

He has served on the Connecticut Public Transportation Commission and is a member of the Connecticut Association for Community Transportation, Transit for Connecticut Coalition, the American Institute for Certified Planners, and the Board of Directors for Leadership Greater Bridgeport.
