The US city of Phoenix has appointed Markus Coleman light rail administrator where he will seek to provide more transit options for commuters in the capital of Arizona.
Mario Paniagua, Phoenix’s deputy city manager, says Coleman “grew up in Phoenix, has strong ties to the South Phoenix community and knows how important public transit is to our citizens who use that as their main mode of getting around”.
Coleman has worked in Phoenix for 23 years on development projects and transportation. He also has served as an engineering technician, plan review coordinator, project manager as well as acting deputy public transit director over transit operations.
