Omnitrans appoints interim to CEO/GM post

Posted on February 20, 2014

The board of directors for San Bernardino, Calif.-based Omnitrans appointed Scott Graham as CEO/GM, eliminating “interim” designation from his title after eight months on the job.

Graham was appointed Interim CEO/GM in June 2013 following the resignation of then-CEO/GM Milo Victoria. He joined Omnitrans in 2006 as Director of Operations, overseeing a department of over 400 employees responsible for delivering fixed route bus service to the San Bernardino Valley. He previously worked at the Orange County Transportation Authority for 12 years.

During his interim tenure, Graham implemented cost-saving measures including organizational changes, reduction of health care expenses and cost containment of professional services. He also focused on the deployment of the new “sbX” bus rapid transit service line.

“We are excited to be launching this new flagship service in late April, on time and under budget,” said Graham.

Prior to embarking on a career in public transportation, Graham spent 26 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, serving in progressively responsible positions in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and the U.S.

Omnitrans currently employs about 640 people directly and has 220 contracted employees. Annual ridership tops 16 million on 32 bus routes and paratransit services combined. The agency fleet includes 177 transit coaches and 105 vans and minibuses for demand response.
