Joél Ramos joined the Board of Directors in 2011 and has been an active volunteer on the Geary Boulevard Bus Rapid Transit Community Advisory Committee since 2008. He serves as the SFMTA’s representative on the Caltrain Joint Powers Board.
Through his personal transit advocacy and prior professional work in community planning at TransForm, Director Ramos has been active on several other Bay Area committees that are committed to providing better pedestrian, bicycling and transit infrastructure, as well as more affordable housing through transit-oriented development.
As a pedestrian, a daily rider of Muni and a regular bicyclist, Director Ramos is committed to making San Francisco’s streets safer for everyone—in particular, seniors and pedestrians. His experience working with underrepresented and low-income communities enriches the SFMTA’s ability to meet the needs of those communities. Director Ramos graduated from San Francisco State University in 1998.
