Birmingham native first Alabamian on APTA committee

By Angel Coker


A Birmingham native has become the first Alabamian to be appointed to the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) executive committee.

Bacarra Mauldin, who has served on the Birmingham Jefferson County Transit Authority for four years, was selected last week to manage priorities for the APTA chair.

Her duties in this new role include leadership and advocacy, preparing new mobility plans, developing risk management, leveraging big data and leading work force for the future.

“I am very grateful to have been chosen for this position with APTA, and it will further help to develop the city of Birmingham,” Mauldin said. “As a member-at-large, I will have influence on decisions made along with the board of directors and can help drive more jobs back here.”

In addition to her appointment to the national committee, she has also been deemed as the “transportation leader” by the transportation authority’s executive director, Barbara Murdock.
