About Mr. Parker

We're excited to have Mr. Parker as the new leader of MARTA, given his recent track record in cities such as San Antonio and Charlotte.  Not only did the transit systems in these cities experience gains in ridership, they did so while maintaining low costs.  Mr. Parker has a desire to improve the overall public transit experience by taking input from the public and utilizing the most relevant technology.

This is a unique opportunity to hear Mr. Parker give a brief talk about how he has transitioned through his career to most recently becoming the General Manager of MARTA.   His career began in the same phase that many of YPT Atlanta's younger members are currently in and his rise to such a respectable position is a testament to the rewards that energy and enthusiasm in transportation can bring to our careers.  His devotion to keeping up with the latest technologies is also admirable, given that advancements happen rapidly and are integral for creating efficient transportation options.  We encourage everyone to mingle with Mr. Parker after his talk and let him know that he has the support of a strong network of young professionals in transportation in Atlanta.
