McMillan left the agency to serve as chief planning officer for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro).

Flowers previously served as the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) senior adviser.

Before joining the FTA, she was chief executive officer of the Charlotte Area Transit System and previously held management positions at L.A. Metro.

"We look forward to continuing to work with Carolyn Flowers as we advance public transportation throughout the country," said American Public Transportation Association President and CEO Michael Melaniphy in a press release. "Her experience as FTA senior advisor over the last year and her decades of experience managing public transportation systems are a tremendous asset as FTA implements critical provisions of the FAST Act."
