Chief Operating Officer Discusses MTA
With the Metro Red Line subway opening, one would think that the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority would be content to bask in what seems like overdue recognition and success. However, with on-going labor negotiations, the pending appeal of the Consent Decree and a day-to-day management style which is extremely bureaucratic, the MTA has only begun to fix the problems hampering this enormous transit agency. Metro Investment Report interviews Allan Lipsky, Chief Operating Officer of the MTA, about his views on how the MTA is progressing towards providing better service, fulfilling the Consent Decree's ruling and regaining the public's trust, confidence and respect.
