Travel Trainer’s Commitment to Community Recognized by Senator Leyva

Often, people wonder whether they are doing right by their boss, family members, or friends. Other times, your state senator gives you that affirmation and recognizes you for going above and beyond to serve your community!

Such was the case for Travel Trainer Ruby Sulca, who was recognized by State Senator Connie Leyva for going above and beyond to serve our community at two local resource fairs earlier this year.

“The unexpected recognition lets me know that I’m doing my job well,” says Ruby, gratefully. “I’m spreading the word to our community and helping those in need of our resources – seniors and adults living with disabilities. They are a big part of the community that we serve, and I am happy to be making a difference.”

Earlier this year, Omnitrans was invited via Ruby to attend two different senior health resource fairs, both in the same week, in Rancho Cucamonga and Montclair. Senator Leyva and her team supported both events and a field representative struck up a conversation with Ruby.

Ruby provided the senator’s team with resources, information, and copies of the Bus Book to help residents in our service area take advantage of the mobility resources provided by Omnitrans. They were happy to learn that Ruby could attend events and deliver presentations to seniors who could benefit from such resources.

At the second fair June 6th, Ruby was pleasantly surprised when she was recognized on stage by Senator Leyva for her efforts at both events that week. A few weeks later, Ruby received a signed Certificate of Recognition from the senator in the mail.

“Transportation is such a great need for the senior demographic,” says Ruby. “I always tell people that we are here to help make them more independent, or help them maintain their independence, through the programs we offer. I love customizing a program that fits their needs and positively impacts their quality of life on a daily basis.”

Omnitrans is proud to have Ruby on the team, and like Senator Leyva, appreciates her steadfast commitment and dedication to improving the quality of life of seniors and people living with disabilities throughout the San Bernardino Valley region!

Jeremiah Bryant to Lead New Strategic Development Department

After 12 years of increasing responsibilities at Omnitrans, Jeremiah Bryant has been promoted to Director of Strategic Development at the transit agency.

Functions of the newly-formed Strategic Development Department will include service planning, development planning, stops and stations management, grant writing, and business intelligence analysis to help us better serve riders.

“We believe Jeremiah’s skills and experience will help Omnitrans strategically adapt to a rapidly changing landscape within transit and in the San Bernardino Valley,” said Omnitrans CEO/General Manager P. Scott Graham.

“I appreciate the investment Omnitrans places in its employees,” said Jeremiah. “Nearly 12 years ago, I joined Omnitrans and hoped to use my analytical abilities to aid the agency. Over the years, Omnitrans has invested in training, development and provided opportunities for growth.”

Bryant began his career at Omnitrans as a Marketing Analyst in 2007 and was promoted to Planning and Scheduling Manager in 2010.  He has represented Omnitrans on numerous regional committees and served as the Agency’s primary contact with the American Bus Benchmarking Group, a national industry peer group. He recently graduated from the inaugural Omnitrans Leadership Development Academy.

“I look forward to leveraging the investment the agency has made in me by leading the Strategic Development Department as we move to enhance Omnitrans’ service in the future,” said Jeremiah.
