CapMetro President and CEO Randy Clarke Accepts Position in Washington, D.C.

AUSTIN, Texas (May 10, 2022) - This morning, CapMetro President & CEO Randy Clarke announced that he has been selected the next General Manager & CEO of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority in Washington, D.C. Clarke will step into this new role this summer, and the CapMetro board will meet this month to work with Clarke on next steps for the transition of leadership at the agency.

“We will certainly miss Randy at CapMetro,” said Travis County Commissioner and CapMetro Board Chair Jeffery Travillion. “I’m proud of the work that we’ve accomplished under Randy’s leadership over these last four years. He’s brought us together in so many ways, from building the community’s trust to secure funding for Project Connect to building trust with our staff that led to improved operations and better relations with our labor union. I’m grateful for his time with us, and our board wishes him great success in our nation’s capital,” Travillion said.

“All along my desire has been to see more communities served through providing better access to high-quality transit, and it’s been an honor to have served the people of Austin and Central Texas,” Clarke said. “I want to thank the incredible staff at CapMetro, our board members, customers, community stakeholders and partners for your support and friendship for the four-plus years that I’ve called Austin my home. This place and you all will be always near to my heart.”
