The board of metropolitan Atlanta's public transit system has chosen a Texas man to head the agency, passing over Steve Bland, CEO of the Port Authority of Allegheny County, who was its other finalist.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority would hire Keith Parker, chief of a San Antonio transit agency.

Mr. Bland remains one of three finalists to become executive director/CEO of the Jacksonville Transportation Authority in Florida. That agency's board will conduct public interviews of the finalists on Wednesday, spokesman John Finotti said. There is no firm date for a decision, he said.
