Jarred Johnson

Chief Operating Officer and Development Director, TransitMatters

Jarred Johnson came to this position after serving as a project manager for the Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation where he managed a variety of complex affordable housing real estate projects and supported organizing efforts for better service on the Fairmount Line. Before that, he helped start the “Love Your Block” mini-grant project and helped write the City of Boston’s first Volunteer Plan as a part of the Civic Engagement Office.

His area of interest is how transit and housing intersect with advocacy and organizing. And through working with low income communities, he’s come to understand just how important access to jobs, walkability, and green forms of transportation can be to raising a community out of poverty and poor health outcomes.
