Charlotte Area Transit System Authority chief executive Keith Parker is leaving to run the transit system in San Antonio, Texas, the Charlotte Observer is reporting.
Parker became CATS chief in December 2007.
The San Antonio bus system handles about 40 million passenger trips a year but does not have light-rail. CATS handles about 25 million passenger trips.
According to the Observer, Parker is awaiting board approval before taking over VIA Metropolitan Transit, which, unlike CATS, is run independently.
