Federal Transit Administrator Peter Rogoff has been tapped as the DOT’s acting undersecretary for policy, Politico reports.

The position was opened last month when Polly Trottenberg left the DOT to become New York City’s transportation commissioner.

Rogoff has led the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) since May 2009.

He previously worked for 22 years on the staff of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
