Long Beach Transit Names McDonald as President/CEO

Long Beach Transit (LBT), Long Beach, CA, has named 25-year public transportation professional Kenneth McDonald as its new president/chief executive officer, effective Aug. 1.

McDonald currently serves as assistant vice president of transit and rail systems with Parsons Brinckerhoff International, overseeing public transit programs and projects throughout the U.S. and Canada.

He is a former chief operating officer of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and worked for the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority for 20 years, ultimately as assistant general manager of operations.

“I am excited to come to Long Beach Transit, an agency that has a positive reputation in both the transit and within the community,” said McDonald. “I look forward to working with the great team of employees who have made Long Beach Transit theprogressive organization it is today. Together we will build on the past success of the organization and move forward to great achievements in the coming years.”

McDonald succeeds Laurence W. Jackson, who retired from LBT earlier this year following 38 years with the system.
