National passenger transportation logistics company American Logistics appointed Ron Brooks as its new VP, transit market development.

With more than 20 years of experience, American Logistics provides transportation in 18 states for the healthcare (NEMT/NMT) and transit (paratransit/dial-a-ride for agencies & municipalities) sectors.

A transportation industry veteran with more than two decades of management experience in the accessible transit and paratransit industry, in both public agencies and private companies, Brooks is well-versed in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) transportation requirements.

After losing his eyesight at age 14, Brooks experienced first-hand the challenges that millions of people with disabilities face each day when trying to use conventional public transit. As a result, he dedicated his career to the planning, development, and management of public transportation and paratransit services that can empower people with disabilities to participate fully in the social, economic, and civic lives of the communities where they live and travel.

Prior to joining American Logistics, Brooks served as manager of accessible transit services at Valley Metro, where he was responsible for overseeing ADA paratransit and alternative transportation services provided for seniors and people with disabilities in participating communities in the Phoenix metropolitan area. He also spent 13 years with Veolia Transportation, where he served in a variety of leadership roles before being named VP, intelliride and paratransit business development in 2012.

Brooks currently serves as the Chairman of the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Access Committee and is a member of the APTA Board of Directors. He also serves as a member of the APTA Diversity Council and the Association’s Mobility Management Committee.
