This month, we are happy to welcome Aaron Moore to Omnitrans as Director of Special Transportation Services (STS)! Aaron succeeds current director Douglas Stanley, who will retire in August after 30 years at Omnitrans.
“We are fortunate to have Aaron on board. He brings tremendous experience in developing and managing successful special transportation programs in the region,” said Omnitrans CEO/General Manager P. Scott Graham.
A seasoned transit professional, Aaron most recently served at Victor Valley Transit Authority (VVTA) as the Mobility Manager and Consolidated Transportation Service Agency Director. In his new role at Omnitrans, Aaron will oversee 14 employees, the contracts which deliver Access and OmniGo services, as well as manage programs for seniors and persons with disabilities. Such programs include: travel training, the volunteer driver reimbursement program, taxi/LYFT subsidy program, and paratransit eligibility certification.
“My favorite part of the work I do in public transit is helping people and seeing the positive effects of the programs which I help to create and operate are having on improving the quality of life for people,” said Moore. “Though many served by our programs are from the vulnerable demographics, public transit has the potential to be a benefit to everyone in the community and also to the environment.”
