Bay Transit bus driver Ronnie Ryals is preparing to go to Palm Springs, California to compete in the National Community Transportation Roadeo after winning first place at the state-level.

The annual competition tests drivers’ skills with a focus on safe operations and passenger sensitivity. Ryals is the only Bay Transit driver to ever win first place.

Before going to the state competition, Bay Transit holds a company-wide competition. Ryals was one of the two finalists who qualified to proceed.
