Ronnie Ryals, Bay Transit Driver, Wins 1st Place at the 2019 CTAV Paratransit ROADEO

Veteran Bay Transit bus operator Ronnie Ryals has won the coveted first place honor at the 2019 Community Transportation Association of Virginia’s (CTAV) annual Paratransit ROADEO which was held in Williamsburg on April 13th. The annual competition among operators from across the state tests skills on every level of the drivers’ abilities, with a primary focus on safe operations and passenger sensitivity.

On May 19th, Mr. Ryals will represent Bay Transit and the state of Virginia at the 30th Annual National Community Transportation Roadeo in Palm Springs, California. The National Community Transportation Roadeo is the only national venue to honor and celebrate the value of rural and community transit operators, the backbone of the Community Transportation industry.

Mr. Ryals, who drives the larger, “body-on- chassis” style buses, was understandably thrilled to win the competition. “I’m humbled to have won this year. There are so many fine drivers at these competitions, it is a real honor,” Ryals said. “I’m really excited and honored to represent Bay Transit and the Commonwealth of Virginia at the national competition next month,” he added. “Thanks for all of the support from my Bay Transit family, my Bay Aging family and my wife.”

Ken Pollock, the Director of Bay Transit, was equally excited with Ryals’ accomplishment. “We are all thrilled for Ronnie. He takes safety and customer service very seriously and is the embodiment of Bay Transit’s commitment to excellence,” Pollock said.

Bay Transit is a division of Bay Aging. Kathy Vesley-Massey, Bay Aging’s President/CEO stated,” Bay Transit operators have been competing at the CTAV Paratransit ROADEOs for years so are well aware of the level of commitment it takes to win overall first place honors. Ronnie has been with us since 2002. He is a fantastic driver and truly caring person who will do us proud at the national competition.”

Along with Ronnie’s overall win, Mike Wallisch won first place for Left hand Reverses.

Congratulations Ronnie and Mike!

Bringing Intercity Bus Service to the Northern Neck

Virginia Breeze is a new intercity bus service. It’s been such a success, the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) is considering new routes for it throughout the state. The only existing route connects Blacksburg, Virginia, with Union  Station in Washington, D.C. The daily route includes several stops in the New River Valley, Shenandoah Valley and  Northern Virginia.

Now, you can let DRPT know that you would like to see a new route from Hampton Roads to Union Station, stopping at Bay Transit’s Warsaw facility, allowing all Northern Neck residents to easily travel to Hampton Roads and the Washington Metropolitan Area without the need of a car. Take the Virginia Breeze survey here to let DRPT know that you support this new route.

The new route (shown at left) was proposed by Bay Transit and the Northern Neck Planning District Commission’s Neckride Program on March 27, 2019. Buses would travel from Old Dominion University > Hampton >Newport News > Gloucester > Tappahannock > Warsaw > Montross > King George > Fredericksburg > Reagan National Airport > Union Station—and back.

Bay Transit has recently completed a comprehensive development plan update which can be viewed here
