County welcomes new transit director

Contact: Jeff Shroll, County Manager, 970-328-8604, jeff.shroll@eaglecounty.us 

Nov. 14, 2019 - Eagle County has hired Tanya Allen as its new ECO Transit Director. Allen joined the county on Nov. 12.

Allen comes to the county from the City of Glenwood Springs, where she served three years as the Transportation Manager. Her responsibilities included long- and short-range planning related to the city’s transit, bike, and pedestrian systems among other duties. Prior to her position in Glenwood, Allen had an 11-year career as a Foreign Service Officer for the U.S. Department of State, representing U.S. interests abroad and managing diverse teams of both U.S. and foreign staff.

In her new role, Allen will oversee the operation of the Eagle County Regional Transportation Authority and will be tasked with implementing ideas to improve transit service and multi-modal access for county residents and visitors. The authority collaborates with other transportation entities and organizations across the region and state.

“Tanya brings a passion for public transportation, with a view of transit as an enabler of opportunity and an environmentally sound investment,” said County Manager Jeff Shroll. “We are very excited to have her on board.”

Allen holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Williams College and a Master of Community Planning with a concentration in transportation planning from the University of Maryland.
