New TCAT Chair Promises Service Expansions, Technology Revamps

Ducson Nguyen assumed the role of new chair of the Tompkins Consolidated Area Transit Board of Directors on Jan. 24. “I joined the rotation [for chair] because I love TCAT,” Nguyen told The Sun. “It is essential to the mission of the City, which is reducing single vehicle usage, cutting down the amount of traffic, improving sustainability [and] allowing for development without having to build extra parking lots.”
The City of Ithaca, Tompkins County and Cornell University serve as the three local underwriters for TCAT. Each underwriter can nominate three people to serve on the nine-person board.
