Ambrose to return as transit administrator


It's deja vu all over again at Corridor Transportation Corp.

Ray Ambrose, transit administrator for 10 years until he left in May to work for Yellow Transportation, will be back at his old job starting Nov. 15, said Walter Townshend, president and chief executive officer of the Baltimore-Washington Chamber of Commerce, who has been filling in.

The chamber oversees the corporation, a private nonprofit operation that provides bus services in portions of Howard, Anne Arundel, Montgomery and Prince George's counties. In Howard, the service is called the Howard Area Transit Service.

Ambrose's old job became available after administrator Peter R. Hefler left this month to run the transit system in Portland, Maine.

Townshend said he called Ambrose when Hefler left.

"They had a need, and I had a comfort level," Ambrose, 47, said.

"He [Ambrose] was well-respected in all circles," Townshend said.
