PORTLAND, OR — Tom Shook has been appointed HDR’s Bus Rapid Transit Leader. Based in Portland, Oregon, Shook has been with HDR for over six years, during which time he has served as a Project Manager and the Northwest BRT Lead. He is concluding the Mill Plain BRT project in Vancouver, Washington, and also has public and private sector experience.

In this role, Shook will be responsible for providing strategic guidance for the BRT practice group. He will work with clients to deliver BRT services, and he will work with staff to increase HDR’s skillsets in BRT.

“Tom’s passion for BRT — as a mode of transportation and as a driver of equity in communities — makes him well-suited to this role,” said Global Transit Director Tom Waldron. “It’s an exciting time for BRT, with its usage growing across the United States and globally. Tom will help us identify new trends and provide unrivaled support to clients, while maintaining our leadership and best practices in BRT design.”

Shook has touched more than a dozen BRT projects in all phases, from planning and design to construction and commissioning, in locations across the country including Portland, Vancouver, Minneapolis, Albuquerque, Orlando, and Los Angeles.
