Shawn Brophy has joined Omnitrans as Director of Operations, bringing over 25 years of experience in the transit industry. He fills a vacancy left by his predecessor, Diane Caldera, who retired in September.
Brophy’s career includes time in both the private and public sectors. He was employed by MV Transportation for the last six years, most recently filling the role of Quality Assurance Director at North County Transit District in San Diego County, California.
“We believe Shawn’s strong background, experience and work ethic will bring the leadership skills needed to address the changing demands of our transit system,” said Omnitrans CEO/General Manager P. Scott Graham.
At Omnitrans, Brophy will oversee a department of more than 480 employees including over 400 coach operators. The agency directly operates 30 bus routes which transport over 36,000 passengers on a typical weekday.
“I was attracted to the agency and the direction it is heading in, integrating a multi-modal platform with the forthcoming Arrow rail system,” said Brophy. “Omnitrans is very technologically advanced and is investing in its future. It is a great organization and I am excited about this opportunity.”
