One of the founding fathers of LANTA has announced his retirement.

Armand Greco helped establish the transit agency in 1972 as a member of the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission.

He's served as LANTA's executive director for 37 years.

During Greco's time with the agency he oversaw the introduction of LANTA's Metro Service as well as the first purchase of accessible 'low floor' buses for handicapped riders.

But it's not time for Greco to kick back just yet; he'll stay on the job until January.
