Mike Scanlon plans to retire

After 15 years leading San Mateo County's transit operations, Michael Scanlon has decided to retire.

"Mike saw all of the possibilities and challenges facing SamTrans as it made the leap from a smaller operator to an important component of the Peninsula commute," said state Sen. Jerry Hill, a former member of the SamTrans and Caltrain boards who participated in hiring Mr. Scanlon.

"He was instrumental in the creation of Caltrain's Baby Bullet express service and the reauthorization of Measure A, to fund roads, highways and public transportation projects throughout the county."

Mr. Scanlon has more than 50 years' experience in the public transportation industry. The date his retirement will take effect remains to be determined, according to SamTrans.
