About the Author
As general manager of Bay Area Rapid Transit, or BART, Grace Crunican oversees more than 3,500 employees and $30 billion of transportation infrastructure. But that is only the culmination of a pioneering transportation career. She has also helmed the Oregon and Seattle Departments of Transportation and has held numerous federal, state, and local government positions including deputy administrator of the Federal Transit Administration. In addition to her extensive public service, she is also a past president of WTS International and has served on many boards of directors including the Mineta Transportation Institute and Railvolution, on which she serves today. Crunican is the mother of two children and freely admits parenting is both the "toughest and most rewarding job" she's ever had.

Currently, she serves on the board of Normandeau Associates, a national environmental science firm. She also has been President of WalkBoston as well as Chair of the Massachusetts Government Appointments Project, an organization advocating for women in government. A longtime WTS member, Levin served as WTS International president.
