BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Assistant Brevard County Manager Jim Liesenfelt announced that Terry A. Jordan was named as Interim Director of the Transit Services Department after former Transit Director Scott Nelson retired earlier this year.
Jordan has served as Space Coast Area Transit’s Planner since June 2017, working on major initiatives such as the Intelligent Transportation System installation, Mobile Fare Payments and bus stop improvements.
Prior to working for Brevard County, Jordan managed two rural transit systems in North Carolina and worked for the North Carolina Department of Transportation managing Federal Transit grants.
He began his career in 1990 at the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority, also known as “Lynx.”
“Terry’s previous experience has prepared him well to manage all areas of Transit Services,” said Liesenfelt.
“We know he will capably lead Transit Services Department employees to continue building on the successful public transportation system already in place. I remain amazed and proud of how our transit management and staff work together, work hard and deliver great service—even through the most difficult year I can remember.”
As a former transit agency director, Jordan was in charge of operations, financial management, budgeting and grants, new service development, State and Federal compliance, policy development, and quality control.
Elected twice to the North Carolina Public Transportation Association Board of Directors, he also presented federally funded programs at the annual Community Transit Conference for North Carolina Public Transportation Systems. Jordan attended Craven Community College and is a graduate of the Brevard County Executive Leadership Program.
“I am very appreciative and excited for this new opportunity,” said Jordan.
“Our entire team has been working hard to improve the transit experience for our customers. Starting April 3rd, there will be new service in Titusville, Port St. John, and expanded service in South Beach.
“An entire collection of new transit tools are being released including a feature-rich bus tracking website, state-of-the art-apps for Android and iOS smartphones, an on-board audio announcement system and contactless mobile fare ticketing. Most importantly, our customers will be able to get real-time vehicle updates and know for certain when their bus is coming.
“Additionally, WIFI will soon be available on all our buses. I am privileged to lead such a great staff, as together we continue moving Brevard’s transit system into the future,” Jordan said.
