Jared Scarbrough

Jared ScarbroughManager Of Systems Engineering

Utah Transit Authority

Jared currently serves as the Manager of Systems Engineering at Utah Transit Authority (UTA). He is also the Project Manager for UTA’s Positive Train Control project on the FrontRunner commuter rail system that received vital certification from the FRA towards the end of 2020. Jared manages a variety of systems-related train control projects such as the train dispatch infrastructure upgrades, which includes adding traction power and electrification controls and indications into UTA’s back office, traction power substation upgrades program, train control upgrades and speed efficiency changes to UTA’s Commuter Rail system, train control and SCADA communications upgrades and redundancy modifications, and a variety of other State of Good Repair projects related to UTA’s various transit systems. 

As the Project Manager for the UTA PTC Project, Jared had the responsibility of managing the design, procurement, grant coordination, installation, testing, Safety Plan submission, coordination with FRA, and final certification of UTA’s cab-signal based Enhanced Automatic Train Control (E-ATC) PTC system. Jared was responsible for all internal coordination efforts required within the transit agency to ensure all stake holders such as engineering departments, MOW, Safety, Operations, PR, and other internal entities were able to provide insight and become educated and active participants during all stages of PTC implementation. 

Jared initiated a project that allows UTA to gain speed efficiencies back on the railroad after the PTC system has been installed. UTA is the first, and currently only E-ATC railroad that is implementing a novel system modification, which we refer to as Mandatory Directive Expedient Release (MDER), which allows trains to immediately resume Maximum Authorized Speed (MAS) once a train has cleared the island. When UTA has a crossing projection in place, this new MDER modification now allows trains to eliminate several minutes of delay time by increasing speed immediately after traversing a crossing rather than waiting for our next track circuit, which could be up to a mile away. This project has already proven to be very beneficial to UTA operations and has received praise from UTA’s operations management group and their operators that run the alignment every day.

Prior to Jared’s time working directly at UTA, he was a consultant to UTA for six years as a Program Manger helping manage the early stages of UTA’s PTC project. Jared has also worked on other large transit project such as the Gold Line Light Rail Extension in Pasadena, CA and the Houston Metro Light Rail projects in Houston, TX. Jared was also a Design-Build contractor on two of UTA’s Light Rail projects prior to his time as a consultant to UTA.

Jared was nominated for the 2011 Utah Engineers Council Fresh Face of Engineering Award. He was also awarded the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) 2011 Young Professional of the Year. He was later selected as the 2013 Engineering News-Record Top 20 under 40 recipient. Jared has graduated from the ACEC-Utah Chapter Leadership class of 2011 as well as the Eno Centre for Transportation Transit Mid-Manager Seminar in Vancouver, BC in 2019.

Jared graduated from the University of Utah with a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering where he was on the Dean’s Honor list and a member of the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society and the Chi Epsilon National Civil Engineering Honor Society.
