Four decades of transit contributions recognized

By Maricopa Association of Governments

With more than four decades of contributions to improving the Valley’s transportation system, MAG Executive Director Eric Anderson has helped change the way the region gets around. Those accomplishments are just part of the reason why the Arizona Transit Association (AzTA) recently named Anderson their 2023 Transit Champion. The award was presented in April at the 36th Annual Statewide Transit Conference hosted by AzTA and the Arizona Department of Transportation. 

A Lifetime of Service

Anderson first began serving MAG in 1983 and was hired in 2000 as transportation director. He was appointed executive director of MAG in 2018. Anderson also served as interim CEO for Valley Metro in 2016. Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, MAG vice chair, thanked Anderson for his leadership at MAG and for stepping into the role at Valley Metro at a critical time.

“There are so many people who can get a ride to work or to school because of his work,” said Gallego. “It’s incredible to think about his contributions, whether it be multiple regional transportation plans or helping grow the Valley system from a few bus lines to a truly regional network. Our skylines have changed because of Eric’s work.”
