Hugh Mose, Iota '71

From an Article in Bucknell’s Alumni Stories profile posted October 14, 2011: Brother Mose turned his childhood love of trucks and buses into an award-winning 34-year career managing public transportation systems. Recently named the American Public Transportation Association's Outstanding Public Transportation Manager, Mose has led small public transit systems in Iowa, California, Washington, and is general manager of the Centre Area Transportation Authority (CATA) in State College, Pa.

While his focus is on small transit systems, he's never been one for small ideas. Since coming to CATA 15 years ago, Brother Mose has spearheaded innovative initiatives: CATA has developed its own iPhone and Android apps, its 60 buses are equipped with GPS systems and it has been using natural gas to fuel its buses for nearly 15 years.
