Dustin Hagfors

Director of Planning & Development

Dustin Hagfors joined CATA in July of 2022 as Director of Planning & Development. Born and raised in the Lansing area, he is excited to get back to his hometown roots.

Prior to joining CATA, Dustin worked for the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation in Metro Detroit as a transportation planner and, most recently, the manager of planning. He worked with dozens of communities across three diverse counties to help shape their transit system to meet their needs. One of the most unique projects he completed during his time at SMART was working alongside community members in his home of Ferndale to take a dated, eyesore of a bus shelter and transform it into an art shelter, complete with revolving works of art and a living roof.

Dustin holds a master’s degree in urban planning and a bachelor’s in urban studies, both from Wayne State University in Detroit. He actively volunteers in his community of Ferndale by serving on the Planning Commission and previously serving on the Beautification Commission, Ferndale Downtown Development Authority Design Committee and assisting with local elections.
