WEST CHESTER, PA — The Chester County Commissioners this week appointed Gene Suski as the new Director of the county’s Community Transit Department, also known as Chesco Connect.

Suski brings with him a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of the county’s public transportation landscape. Having served Chester County since 1998 in various roles, his most recent position was Community Services and Construction Manager for the Department of Community Development.

The Commissioners—Josh Maxwell, Marian Moskowitz, and Eric Roe—expressed their full confidence in Suski’s capabilities. “Gene’s experience with and knowledge of the Community Transit programs when it was Rover make him highly qualified to manage Chesco Connect,” they said in a joint statement. “He has worked with all levels of community transportation, including with the Transportation Management Association of Chester County, SEPTA, and the PA Department of Transportation.”

Chesco Connect plays a vital role in the day-to-day lives of Chester County residents, offering door-to-door shared-ride transportation to essential locations such as medical appointments, workplaces, grocery stores, pharmacies, and senior centers.

Department of Human Services Director Pat Bokovitz echoed the Commissioners’ sentiments, noting, “Gene’s career with Chester County has been spent serving the community, and his new role with Chesco Connect is no different. He will ensure that safe, timely, and convenient transportation is available to anyone who needs it.”

Suski, a graduate of Widener University and a veteran of the Pennsylvania National Guard, now takes the helm at a crucial time. As the new Director of Chesco Connect, he will be tasked with not only maintaining but enhancing the quality and accessibility of transportation services for the county’s residents.
