The Rochester-Genesee Regional Transit Authority’s top lawyer, Hal Carter, and its chief financial officer, Robert Frye, will resign this year, officials announced Tuesday.
Carter, who joined the RGRTA in 2006 and is its general counsel and chief administrative officer, is to retire Sept. 30.
“Instead of the role of outside counsel, which is to advise on the legalities of strategies conceived by others, I got to participate in the planning and creativity of the organization,” Carter said in a statement.
He previously was a partner at Harris Beach PLLC for 29 years.
Frye is to retire Dec. 31 after 15 years with the authority.
“The challenge with public service is to do it well, given limited resources,” he said in the statement. “We’ve improved our services even though the (Regional Transit Service subsidiary) adult fare is $1. That’s pretty amazing.”
A search for a new CFO is under way, officials said.
RGRTA provides transportation for nearly 18.5 million customers each year, covering 34,000 miles daily in Monroe and neighboring counties.
