APTA Says Goodbye--and Hello--to McMillan

During the Legislative Conference, APTA said goodbye to Therese McMillan as acting FTA administrator—and hello to McMillan in her new job as chief planning officer for Los Angeles Metro.

APTA Chair Valarie J. McCall and President & CEO Michael Melaniphy recognized McMillan with a ceremony at the conclusion of the “Update from the Federal Transit Administration” session. The audience gave her a standing ovation as she received a framed resolution and a large bouquet in her honor.

McMillan joined FTA as deputy administrator in 2009 and earlier was deputy executive director-policy at the San Francisco Bay Area Region’s Metropolitan Transportation Commission.
