A History of Performance
Roadrunner is a family-owned business that started out in 1991 with one van and one driver servicing Southern California with Door-to-Door Airport Rideshare Service. The Owner, Desmond Sandlin, named the company after the Pop-Warner football team that he coached for more than 10 years, the Camarillo “Roadrunners”.
In 1997, Roadrunner was named the exclusive long-haul airport shuttle concessionaire to/from LAX and Ventura County, serving some 500 passengers per day with demand-response door-to-door service. After the terrorist acts of Sept. 11, 2001 and LAX was closed for four days, Roadrunner diversified into public transit.
Paratransit and ADA transportation solutions were added to Roadrunner’s services in 2005, providing service to seniors, people with special needs and those whose physical or mental abilities prevent them from using public or ADA transportation. Roadrunner drivers receive extensive training in providing caring, compassionate and patient care to all riders, especially those with special needs.
Roadrunner has enjoyed continuous growth to become a premium-service yet cost-effective transportation solution for public agencies, private organizations and individuals. Still family owned and managed, today Roadrunner’s business includes 45 percent of service being public transit, including fixed-route transit, on-demand and dial-a-ride services, and charter service.
