 Rod Diridon, Sr



During a more than 35-year career, Rod Diridon, Sr., appreciates rail’s linchpin niche in the nation’s transportation network.  He began his elected career in 1971 as a 31-year-old city council member followed by 20 years, six times chair, of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors and Transit Board. Diridon chaired APTA, the Bay area’s three regional agencies, and was UITP vice chair.  He is especially proud of cofounding the APTA Diversity Council supporting women and minorities.
