KL2 CEO Placement Donaghy Honored
Chris Brown of Vancouver Washington's Clark County Today reports that C-TRAN was recently honored by the American Public Transportation Association as the Nation’s Best Public Transit system. C-TRAN won in the mid-sized category, meaning systems with between 4 and 12 million rides per year. Donaghy joined C-TRAN in 2017, coming from Fort Worth, and says it was the best decision of his career. “There are jobs, and there are opportunities,” Donaghy told the crowd of elected officials and C-TRAN employees, “this was clearly the latter.” David Carol, Chief Operating Officer for APTA, said C-TRAN was one of the few mid-sized transit agencies in the U.S. with ridership numbers that continue to trend upwards, increasing 4.6 percent between 2016 and 2018 to 6.2 million trips per year. C-TRAN was also recognized for receiving a perfect rating from the Federal Transit Authority during its triennial review.
