Each year, a finite group of Omnitrans coach operators join an exclusive club for their safe driving record – the coveted Million Mile Club! These coach operators have successfully logged 25,000 driving hours over 12 years without a preventable accident. This means that they have driven the distance of a round-trip from here to the moon, twice, accident-free.

The safety of customers and employees is our top priority, and this group of operators was recognized by the Board of Directors in March for their commitment to providing safe and reliable transportation to residents, commuters, and visitors in the San Bernardino County region.

The 2021 recipients of the One Million Mile Club awards are: Gloria Bell, Laura Bronson, Darnell Frierson, Semira Hussien, James Plascencia, and Juan Sipres. They receive a cash prize, commemorative Omnitrans hat, embroidered Million Mile jacket, nameplate for their coach, plaque, and belt buckle, a certificate, and an additional day off with pay.

“Achieving this milestone takes continuous effort and skill to sustain safe driving performance over a lengthy period,” says Director of Operations Shawn Brophy. “Operating a transit vehicle over the past 12 years has required dynamic adaptability to technology changes, ever-increasing traffic congestion and multitasking while maintaining professional customer service as a focus.”

Congratulations to these dedicated operators on earning this distinction!
