The recently-formed Gulf Coast Transit District (GCTD) announced the appointment of two key executive staff members at its December 8th Board meeting. Sean Middleton, currently employed by The Goodman Corporation, and Nathan Nevelow, currently employed by the City of Galveston, will serve in the positions of Executive Director and Administrative/Finance, respectively, for the new District. The GCTD represents the Connect Transit system which is transitioning from the Gulf Coast Center, a Community Center which provides service and support for people with mental health, substance abuse, and intellectual and developmental disabilities in Galveston and Brazoria Counties. The new GCTD is expected to be fully operational in April of 2021.

GCTD Board Chairman Stephen Holmes, who represents Galveston County as Commissioner of Precinct 3, stated that securing both Middleton for Executive Director and Nevelow for the Administrative/Finance position represents the first steps in developing an executive staff to oversee the Connect Transit workforce and operations. The new agency will take over an approximate $5 million annual operating budget and $12 million in recently completed and ongoing capital improvements.

The agency is completing certification requirements with regional, state and federal agencies as well as establishing the financial, management and personnel systems necessary to support ongoing operations. The agency will operate fixed route, ADA paratransit, demand response, and commuter services in Brazoria and Galveston counties.
