Omnitrans taps interim CEO/GM

Posted on June 20, 2013

San Bernardino, Calif.-based Omnitrans’ board of directors appointed Scott Graham as interim CEO/GM following the resignation of Milo Victoria earlier this month.

Graham originally joined Omnitrans in 2006 as director, operations, overseeing a department of over 400 employees responsible for delivering fixed-route bus service to the San Bernardino Valley each day. He previously worked at the Orange County Transportation Authority for 12 years as a transportation base manager.

“I see many opportunities for us to make a positive and secure future for the agency,” said Graham. “At this very moment we are expanding our fleet and changing its composition to welcome our flagship bus rapid transit service — sbX— set to launch in 2014.”

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 164 transit coaches and 105 vans and minibuses for demand response.
