September 17, 1996|By Erin Texeira | Erin Texeira,SUN STAFF

The Urban Rural Transit Alliance last week appointed a long-time Columbia resident as its new operations manager.

Don C. Robinson, who has worked in the transportation industry for nearly 30 years, began work last Monday, said Janet L. McGlynn, executive director of URTA.

Robinson, who has lived with his wife in the Village of Wilde Lake for more than 20 years, was working as a part-time driver for the company when the position became available, he said. Before joining URTA, he was terminal manager for the Baltimore-based Terminal Corp. At URTA, he will oversee a staff of about 20 full- and part-time drivers and a fleet of 26 buses and vans.

URTA is a 20-year-old private nonprofit agency that uses specially equipped vehicles to transport disabled people, low-income residents and senior citizens.
