A Los Angeles public transit executive has been appointed to lead a team reviewing transportation programs for President-Elect Joseph Biden.

Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority CEO Phillip A. Washington will lead the 18-member team which includes members from labor unions, academia, public transportation agencies, retired members of Congress, think tanks, private consultants, and the aviation field.

The team will advise the incoming Biden administration  on the U.S. Department of Transportation, Amtrak, the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Maritime Commission among other transportation programs and agencies.

It is one of 39 agency review teams that have been established to advise Biden. All members of the transportation team will be volunteers.

The transportation review team will meet with former agency officials and experts who closely follow federal agencies, and with officials from think tanks, labor groups and trade associations.
