Currently, Nick is the President-elect for The Transportation Alliance, which represents the interests of members in 250 cities on four continents, including airport shuttle, executive sedan, limousine, non-emergency medical transportation, paratransit, and taxicab fleets. The Transportation Alliance is the largest trade organization in the industry, with members operating over 100,000 vehicles and serving 900 million passengers per year.
As a previously appointed member of the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged, Nick was instrumental in establishing effective laws and regulations for the coordination of transportation services and resources in State-funded transportation programs.
Throughout Nick’s transportation career, which started with his family’s Clearwater, FL based Yellow Cab operation before he’d even graduated from Hillsborough Community College, much of his focus has been on providing reliable and safe paratransit, transportation disadvantaged, and Medicaid NEMT services.
In 2004, Nick formed the TMS Management Group, Inc. (TMS), a premier transportation management/brokerage firm that specialized in providing quality non-emergency transportation services to numerous public and private organizations across the nation. TMS offered transportation services to 13 different states and provided services to 3 million eligible healthcare members nationwide. In 2005, Nick started Bay Area Metro, LLC which provides on-demand ground transportation services to the general public, is involved in the DART “Choice” Program with the local Transit Agency and works closely with many governmental agencies on various innovative transportation programs.
Nick currently serves or has served on many boards directly related to the ground transportation industry including the Transportation Alliance (formerly Taxicab Limousine Paratransit Association), Bay Area Commuter Service (BACS), and the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged (CTD).
