He is responsible for a 13-city transit system covering a 700-square mile service area with bus, light rail, commuter rail, and paratransit services. A panel discussion will follow his presentation. Under Thomas’ leadership DART has doubled its light rail system — twice — to become the nation's longest at 85 miles.
