The Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority’s (TARTA) Board of Trustees has unanimously reelected president Kelsie Hoagland and vice president Mary Morrison to their leadership posts.
“It’s an honor to be a small part of this wonderful group of people changing the face of public transportation in northwest Ohio,” Hoagland said. “TARTA’s leadership and employees have sent a clear message to customers that this is a better agency than what they’ve known, and it’s an exciting time to be here.”
Kelsie and Mary were named president and vice president of TARTA’s board in December of 2020, and have overseen an eventful year for the organization. Under their leadership, TARTA:
Kelsie works in public relations for the Ohio Department of Transportation and previously worked in marketing for the Central Ohio Transit Authority.
Mary came to TARTA with an extensive background in management and community engagement. She served as president of the board of the Sylvania Prevention Alliance and is on the board of the Gracefield Foundation.
Both Kelsie and Mary have been TARTA board members since 2019.
“I am greatly appreciative of the board’s confidence,” Morrison said. “I think the passage of the levy proved that people have noticed improvements in efficiency and community involvement and are ready to step with us into a future that features public transportation as an economic driver in this region.
“The talented and dedicated people of TARTA continue to make a difference for people who depend on them every day.”
TARTA provides a vital link in the Toledo metro area to jobs, education, health care and other destinations. It enables everyone in our community to have access to transportation regardless of their age, race, physical ability or economic background. TARTA is underway with exploring and introducing new initiatives and service options that will enhance convenience and customer experience while moving our region into the future of public transit.
