BART GM Dugger resigns; agency launches search for successor


On Wednesday, Bay Area Rapid Transit's (BART) board accepted the resignation of General Manager Dorothy Dugger, who will step down later this month.

Under the terms of a mutual agreement, BART will pay Dugger $958,000 and she will leave the post April 22. Her settlement includes $350,000 “to ensure a smooth transition and to avoid any litigation between the parties,” said BART officials in a prepared statement.

Dugger was BART’s eighth GM and the first female to serve in that role. She served the agency for 19 years, including four as GM, 13 as deputy GM and two as executive manager of external affairs.

The board planned to meet today in closed session to consider naming an interim GM and to discuss plans for finding a permanent successor.
