CHAPEL HILL – Your local transit authority has been led by an interim director for the past ten months, and now, Brian Litchfield is taking over as the full-time director.
Town Manager Roger Stancil announced Friday that he has appointed Litchfield as Chapel Hill Transit’s director.
Litchfield served as the assistant director of the second largest transit system in North Carolina since 2008. With a 125-bus fixed route and para-transit system and an average weekday ridership of 35,000 people, CHT is second only to the Charlotte Area Transit System.
Before Chapel Hill, Litchfield was the chief development officer for the Des Moines Regional Transit Authority in Des Moines, Iowa.
