#DamienTalksSGV 19 – Foothill Transit’s Doran Barnes

This week, #DamienTalks with Doran Barnes, the executive director of Foothill Transit and the Chair of the Board of Directors for the American Public Transportation Association (APTA).

Damien Talks SGV logoOur conversation touches on a wide range of subjects including integrating Foothill Transit with the new Gold Line Extension, Measure M, and Foothill Transit’s ground-breaking electric bus program.

We also talk about both APTA and Barnes’ agenda as chair of this national advocacy organization for transit providers. Barnes lists three things he would like APTA to accomplish in the next year, one of which is assuring that the infrastructure needs of the country remain a priority for the incoming administration in the White House.

If you want to hear the other two, you will have to listen in.

#DamienTalks is supported by Foothill Transit, offering car-free travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley with connections to the new Gold Line Stations across the Foothills and Commuter Express lines traveling into the heart of downtown L.A.
