[ARCHIVED] Douglas County Commissioners Announce the Promotion of Ron Roberts to Director of Transit Services


Douglas County, GA - The Board of Commissioners voted unanimously (5-0) to promote Planning and Zoning Manager Ron Roberts to the Director of Transit Services position at its legislative meeting on Tuesday, April 19. 

 Roberts is an American Institute of Certified Planners. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Georgia and a Master’s in Public Administration from Columbus State University with an emphasis in Regional and Urban Planning. He has over 25 years of experience working in Transit and Transportation/Land Use planning and project management.

 “The opportunity to be the first Transit Director at Connect Douglas is a blessing. I am leaving a terrific team in Planning and Zoning and embarking on this challenge with great enthusiasm,” said Ron Roberts, Director of Transit.   “I am grateful to the Board of Commissioners and Tiffany Stewart-Stanley. It’s like I was meant to be here at this moment and time, and I look forward to bringing my transit, transportation, and land use skills to help Connect Douglas and the citizens of Douglas County.”

 Roberts has been with Douglas County for just over five years on two different occasions.  As Director of Transit Services, Roberts will be in charge of Connect Douglas, the county’s fixed-route bus system, the vanpool and voucher program.  In his new capacity, Roberts will be reporting directly to Assistant County Administrator Tiffany Stewart-Stanley.
