General Manager/CEO

Henry Li, General Manager/CEO of the Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT), is a game changer, visionary and transformational leader in the transportation industry.

 

During his 20-year transit career, Li has had successful experience leading a variety of cutting-edge, industry initiatives in politically complex and dynamic communities.

 

He brings to the job a wealth of public transportation executive management experience, and has an intimate knowledge of proven practices that put riders first; improves cleanliness, safety and security; shores up financial instabilities; increases ridership; and engages the public and private sector.

 

Li came to RT from the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) in Jacksonville, Florida. While there, Li played a critical leadership role in a historic turnaround of the mid-sized city’s public transit agency, one that faced similar financial instabilities and ridership issues as RT.

 

Li and the JTA are credited with the successful passage of a dedicated transit funding campaign, the implementation of innovative cost control measures, the build-up of nearly $100 million in reserves, and a comprehensive overhaul of bus routes resulting in a 5.5 percent increase in ridership.

 

As a result, the Jacksonville Business Journal awarded the JTA its “2014 Big Turnaround Organization” distinction, and the American Public Transportation Association has recognized the JTA as “2016 Outstanding Public Transportation System.”

 

In addition, Li has held senior management positions at the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority.

 

Li acquired a master’s degree in Liberal Arts in Wuhan, China, and an MBA from Georgia Southern University, and he is a Certified Public Accountant.
