The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority's board on Sept. 15 approved Collie Greenwood's contract as MARTA's general manager and CEO.

Greenwood’s employment agreement is retroactive to January 2023 and extends to January 2027. He had served as interim GM/CEO since January 2022.

Under his leadership, MARTA has remained fiscally sound, with a balanced budget for the 12th straight year, no fare increase, and two triple A bond ratings, MARTA officials said in a press release.

Greenwood has advanced the capital program with a groundbreaking on the region’s first bus rapid transit line and recently oversaw the ratification of an historic labor agreement that includes a 16% raise, parental leave and attendance and longevity bonuses, they said.

"Since I stepped into this position, I've focused on improving service, delivering a better customer experience and expanding our system to meet the needs of more customers," said Greenwood.

Greenwood joined MARTA in July 2019 as chief of bus operations and urban planning and was named deputy GM of operations in 2021.
