His term began Monday, and next year, he will become IBTTA president.

Tomlinson is executive director of the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA) and the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA). In these roles, Tomlinson provides leadership and guidance for tolling, transit, and transportation financing.

GRTA provides transportation performance management and monitoring on behalf of Georgia’s governor. It provides final review and approval of the federally required regional transportation plan on behalf of the governor, monitors and reports on air quality; and serves as SRTA’s transit advisory board.

SRTA operates Georgia’s tolled transportation facilities and is the state’s transportation financing arm.

The authorities combined last year to jointly provide services.

“IBTTA is pleased that Chris Tomlinson, executive director of the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority and State Road and Tollway Authority will bring his leadership and vision to our association and industry,” Patrick Jones, IBTTA executive director and CEO, said. “Chris’s transportation, transit and legal experience will be a tremendous asset to our Board at this critical time when we address major infrastructure needs, challenges and advances in transportation.”
