Raymond “Elmo” Aylmer seems to have this Florida Paratransit Roadeo down to an art form.

Aylmer, representing Gulf Public Transportation, won two more first-place plaques in Fort Myers during the recent statewide competition for drivers from organizations that provide public transportation to the disabled, seniors and needy.

“The competition is intense, it is nothing you just show up for and do,” Aylmer said. “It makes you feel good about yourself.

“You competed against everybody in the state and being from this small community, it’s nice knowing the services we provide people is recognized because the people down south, they know who we are.”

That is in large measure due to Aylmer, who has made success at the Roadeo an annual rite of spring.

Aylmer has been with Gulf Transportation for 16 years. He has competed in 11 Roadeos. He has taken home a plaque for one of the top three spots in all but three of those competitions and has finished second once at the national Roadeo.

He has won four first-place awards for Highest Bus Inspection Score in the past five years.
