An AATA press release this morning reads,

ANN ARBOR, MI – Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AATA) Executive Director/CEO Greg Cook has informed AATA Board Chair David Nacht and Board Personnel Committee Chair Paul Ajegba of his intent to submit his resignation.

Nacht has announced that Assistant Executive Director Dawn Gabay will assume the duties of the executive director in the interim until a new director is found.

Gabay has 32 years of experience with AATA, including previous experience as interim executive director.

Nacht said, “AATA will continue to thrive and continue to grow under Ms. Gabay’s direction. We thank Greg Cook for his years of service and commitment to AATA and the community.”

The News reports that Cook’s resignation was spurred by questions over use of an AATA credit card. “‘At that time, I thought I had paid,’ Cook said. ‘I said that I flat blew it.’”

In better AATA-related news, the agency was just awarded Federal CMAQ money to purchase 27 hybrid diesel-electric buses over the next 2 years.
