Thomas Yuill the Planner

Thomas Yuill is another one of our hidden gems here at the Birmingham-Jefferson County Transit Authority. Thomas is the type of guy that is willing to help anyone in any way that he can. He is a native of Opelika and a graduate of Auburn University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. When Thomas graduated from Auburn University, he then went on to complete his Masters in Public Affairs at Indiana University South Bend. 

Thomas began his career in transit working at the Metropolitan Planning Organization in Indiana. He then moved to Birmingham, Alabama and came to our Planning Department as a Planner, where is currently working. He also served in the role of ADA certification and Compliance. Although Thomas’ passion is planning, he thoroughly enjoyed working with our Paratransit Department. He feels as if he has developed an even deeper compassion for humanity after serving in the role of ADA Certification and Compliance. He has enjoyed helping our paratransit riders become more independent.
