Anthony E. Shorris has been named the new Director of the NYU Wagner Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management.

Shorris most recently served as Executive Director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the nation’s oldest public authority, responsible for the region’s five airports, three container ports, six bridges and tunnels connecting two states, the PATH transit system, and the World Trade Center.
