Michael G. Mobey


Michael G. Mobey was general manager of the Isabella County Transportation Commission (ICTC) from 1983 to 1995. Mobey pioneered county flexible routing, which became a rural transit system standard in the state. Under Mobey's leadership, ICTC was the first rural transit agency in the state to offer countywide transit service, become a fully computerized rural service, establish fixed routes, write specifications for procurement of new buses, rebuild buses for other systems, and join the Greyhound Rural Connector Program public-private partnership. Under Mobey's innovative direction, ICTC was the state's first rural system to reach the 1 million, 2 million, and 3 million ridership marks. In addition to mentoring successive ICTC general managers and staff, he was instrumental in developing a home-study course for rural transit managers offered through Central Michigan University. In 2014, due to Mobey's legacy in local, state, and national transit activities, ICTC was nationally recognized as the 2014 Rural Community Transit System of the Year.
