The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) has named Josh Rowan its new deputy general manager.
Rowan has 26 years of program and construction management experience, delivering more than $5 billion in facility and infrastructure projects, most recently serving as General Manager of Atlanta’s City Renew/TSPLOST Program and Commissioner of the inaugural Atlanta Department of Transportation.
He will implement MARTA’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The CIP lays out the current and planned investment in capital projects that enable MARTA to meet its mission of providing safe, multimodal transit services that advance prosperity, connectivity, and equity for a more livable region.
The program includes maintaining and upgrading existing MARTA assets, such as its 38 heavy rail stations, tracks, vehicles, and other infrastructure. It also includes MARTA’s expansion program to add high-capacity transit service across its jurisdictions, such as the Summerhill and Campbellton Corridor Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) projects in Atlanta, high-capacity transit in Clayton County, the Clifton Corridor in DeKalb County, and the Georgia 400 BRT line in Fulton County.
