Atlanta — Sep 06, 2019
The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) has promoted Rosalind Tucker to managing director of the agency’s Mobility Services Group.
Tucker leads a team of transportation demand management (TDM) professionals focused on promoting commute alternatives — such as teleworking, biking, walking, carpools/vanpools, and transit — to people who currently drive alone. She also serves as managing director for the Georgia Commute Options program, which offers incentives to drivers who switch from driving alone to alternative commuting methods. This program is funded by the Georgia Department of Transportation and managed by ARC.
Tucker also oversees funding for the TDM efforts of the region’s Transportation Management Associations. Finally, she and her team coordinate TDM communications to help drivers during the construction of the I-285/Georgia 400 interchange.
Previously, Tucker served as Manager of Outreach and Employer Services for Georgia Commute Options. She brings more than 25 years of experience to the position. After helping to pioneer the revitalization of The Villages of East Lake, she was named Atlanta’s Most Up and Coming by the Atlanta Business Chronicle. In 2013, Tucker joined ARC in the Aging and Independence Services Group, where she supported the Lifelong Communities Initiative and led the Sweet Auburn Transformation Project.
“During her career, Tucker has navigated the connections between human services, mobility, community engagement, and philanthropy, and has shown great visionary leadership and strategic management expertise, said Mike Alexander, Director of ARC’s Center for Livable Communities. “This wealth of experience, across sector, makes Tucker an ideal person to lead this group’s efforts to enhance quality of life in the Atlanta region by improving air quality and reducing congestion.”
The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is the official planning agency for the 10-county Atlanta Region, including Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties as well as the City of Atlanta and 73 other cities.
