The board of directors of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, or Mobility Authority, welcomed new Travis County appointee Jay Blazek Crossley.

Crossley was sworn in at the mobility authority board of directors meeting Feb. 23, after being appointed by the Travis County Commissioners Court at the Jan. 27 meeting.

Crossley will replace former board member John Langmore, who served four years.

“John Langmore has been a valued member of our board,” Bobby Jenkins, chairman of the Mobility Authority Board of Directors, said in a press release.

Crossley has several years of experience in urban planning and transportation. He serves on the Texas Pedestrian Safety Coalition, the TxDOT External Partner Workgroup on System Safety, Capital Metro’s Project Connect Advisory Network, and on the Board of Vision Zero ATX to name a few.

Crossley attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he received his bachelor's degree in liberal arts and master of public affairs degree from the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs.

Amongst other roles throughout Crossley’s career, he is also the founder and executive director of Farm&City, a nonprofit dedicated to high quality urban & rural human habitat in Texas.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to serve Central Texas in a new capacity,” Crossley said in a press release. “This agency is well positioned to significantly improve quality of life for the region, and I look forward to working with the board and staff to explore and evaluate more safe, multimodal, affordable mobility options for Central Texans.”
