Walker to manage Texoma Area paratransit

Posted on April 10, 2017

Transdev has named Josh Walker as GM of Transdev’s contract with the Texoma Area Paratransit Services (TAPS) in Sherman, Texas. This service links passengers living in a six-county geographical region wider than the state of Connecticut to places of employment, family visits, retail trips and critical medical services.

Walker is familiar with the TAPS service and operations, as he has held several roles in the organization since 2012, first as Director of Safety and Security and eventually as Director of Operations. When Transdev and the TAPS Board of Directors agreed to the public-private operating partnership (PPOP) in March 2016, Walker joined Transdev as the assistant GM.

Transdev operates all aspects of the transit system on behalf of TAPS as part of the PPOP relationship. Since then, he has worked diligently with staff and the board to resurrect the shuttered service while implementing a vigorous safety culture and customer service improvements.
 
A native of the area, Walker spent 10 years as an officer with the Bonham Police Department before he joined the TAPS team.
