    BART's Board of Directors on Thursday unanimously appointed Robert "Bob" Powers to be the transit agency's new general manager.

    Powers, who most recently served as BART's deputy general manager, takes over the reins from retired general manager Grace Crunican. Crunican, who served in the position for eight years, did not provide any reason as to why she left or what she would be doing next.

    Powers, a professional engineer, has spent seven years with BART. He has more than 20 years of experience in the public transportation sector, according to BART.

    Below is a list of Powers' top priorities, according to BART.
