BATON ROUGE- The public transit czar has quit; Brian Marshall resigned from the Capital Area Transit System (CATS) Monday.

Marshall alerted board members that he would be leaving immediately in a 426-word letter. Marshall called the system neglected, but that there have been positive changes.

Marshall said the "current environment is not conducive to building a sustainable system."

"We can be more aggressive in how we move forward," CATS Board President Isaiah Marshall said in a phone interview with WBRZ News 2. Isaiah Marshall and Brian Marshall are not related.

"I wish the Capital Area Transit System and Baton Rouge the best of luck," Marshall said in closing.
