TMA Bucks announced at its annual meeting on June 20 that its board of directors has named Stephen Noll the organization’s new executive director.
Noll, a native of Dublin Borough who has been serving as the acting executive director since September 1, 2017, had previously served as the organization’s deputy director for more than 15 years.
Noll joined TMA Bucks as its first deputy director in January, 2002. He has been directly responsible for planning, management, and contract administration for the nonprofit agency’s many traffic congestion reduction, job access transportation, and air quality improvement grant programs. These programs have resulted in access to employment for thousands previously without transportation and have kept thousands of tons of vehicle emissions out of Bucks County’s air.
“I am honored to lead this outstanding organization moving forward,” said Noll. “I really think it is important that as a TMA we continue strong information and educational programing, expanding and creating more community engagement and growing the organization with business partners who share our goal of addressing transportation issues, reducing traffic congestion, and improving public transportation access in Bucks County.”
Noll has been a key participant in many large-scale projects, including the $150 million Quakertown – Lansdale commuter rail restoration project and a regionally-recognized effort to integrate Compressed Natural Gas fueling in Bucks County’s public and private fleets. He serves on the Bucks County Enterprise Zone Board and has previously held the elected office of Borough Councilman in Dublin Borough, Bucks County.
Steve holds a bachelor’s degree from Penn State University and is presently pursuing his MBA at West Chester University of Pennsylvania. He lives in East Rockhill Township, Bucks County.
