PHOENIX, AZ — HDR’s Gina Thomas, P.E., ENV SP, LEED AP, has been promoted to Global Bus Rapid Transit Practice Leader. Based in Phoenix, Arizona, Thomas has experience managing and delivering transit projects, from initial alternatives analysis, conceptual engineering, and planning-level cost estimating to final design and construction.

In her new role, Thomas will guide HDR’s BRT work in coordination with the firm’s transit and highways practices. She will help clients identify, build, and deliver BRT services that enhance bus speed, reliability, and the rider experience for millions of people in the U.S. and Canada.

“BRT is a valuable option in the transportation toolbox,” said Bernie Arseneau, HDR Highways and Roads Director. “BRT is growing by leaps and bounds, and Gina will excel at delivering HDR’s vision to provide communities a safe and equitable transportation option to enhance quality of life.”

“Few people know transit like Gina,” said Matt Tucker, HDR Global Transit Director. “She’s been a leader in identifying and harnessing industry trends to support clients through the planning and development of BRT projects, and this new role will allow more to benefit from her expertise.”

Thomas has spent 14 years advancing transit projects at HDR. She has become a skilled leader within the transit industry through streetcar and BRT projects across North America. She is currently serving in management and leadership roles on BRT projects in Tucson and Phoenix.

“BRT projects present unique and exciting opportunities in urban infrastructure development to create meaningful and sustainable solutions for our clients,” Thomas said. “Through the collaboration of transit and roadway, we’re able to enhance mobility within corridors and leverage funding from both sources to implement much-needed mobility improvements. This synergy reaffirms our commitment to pioneering excellence in transit innovation.”
