TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) --- A Topeka CEO has been named one of the top ten Women Transit CEO's in the nation by Metro Magazine.
Janlyn Nesbett-Tucker is the first female CEO of Topeka Metro.
She is the immediate past president of the Kansas Public Transit Association, as well as a member of Southwest Transit Association and numerous other community organizations.
Prior to Nesbett-Tucker's arrival, Topeka Metro, the only transit authority in the state, couldn't operate outside city limits. After she worked with state legislators and the city council, legislation passed that extended the agency's service area just last year.
