Jessica Mefford-Miller has been named executive director of Metro Transit-St. Louis, Bi-State Development President and Chief Executive Officer John Nations announced yesterday.

Mefford-Miller has been serving as interim executive director since July 1.

"Metro Transit is one of the St. Louis region's most important resources, and Jessica Mefford-Miller is the best person to lead Metro Transit," Nations said in a press release. "Over the last 12 years, she has established herself as a talented and dedicated leader, and she has the unique vision the bi-state region needs to move Metro Transit into the future of public transit and mobility by incorporating new technology and innovations."

In her previous role as the agency's assistant executive director for planning and system development, Mefford-Miller was responsible for developing and implementing mobility solutions. She joined Metro Transit in 2006.

As executive director, Mefford-Miller will oversee all three of the agency's operations: MetroLink light-rail service, MetroBus and Metro Call-A-Ride.

"Metro Transit is committed to providing safe, reliable and convenient service options that meet the mobility needs of our riders and the St. Louis region," she said. "As we move forward, we will be exploring new service options and new technology to ensure we continue to deliver on that commitment and give all of our customers the best possible transit experience."
