Streamline's One Millionth Rider Chosen – Roberta Stevens honored

Streamline Bus Service Celebrates a Million Rides!

The Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) and Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) celebrate Streamline’s one millionth ride on Veterans Day in Bozeman.
On Friday, November 11, 2011 at 8:45 AM, the lucky one millionth rider will be greeted by Streamline staff, Board Members and volunteers at the Downtown Transfer station – located at Mendenhall and Black streets.  The unsuspecting rider will disembark Streamline’s Blueline (Route) to awaiting gifts and the honor of being the one millionth rider!
The Press is invited to attend.  The rider will be available for interviews and photographs.
Streamline, a program of the HRDC, is Bozeman’s public transit system.  The system was launched in partnership with ASMSU in August of 2006. Streamline service has knitted the community together – connecting our neighborhoods as never before.  Streamline’s convenient, fare –free rides allow residents and visitors access to work, school, medical care, recreation and the like; reduces the pressure on downtown parking and traffic; and helps eliminate automobile emissions. In addition, the system has enhanced public safety with late night services and strengthened connectivity to outlying neighborhoods and the nearby communities of Belgrade and Livingston.  Most importantly, the Streamline buses symbolize what can happen when people pull together to find new ways of making the community more livable and affordable for those who call the Gallatin Valley home.
Streamline is funded by the Federal Transit Administration, with funds administered by the Montana Department of Transportation; and local support from ASMSU, Montana State University, and the City of Bozeman.
Streamline and the HRDC are proud of their role in making Bozeman the most livable place!
The HRDC is a nonprofit community action agency dedicated to strengthening community.  To learn more visit

Brooke Poole

Public Sector

Since 2015, Brooke has been working with Allergan Aesthetics, Body Contouring. In 2018, Brooke began her role as Senior Manager of Training. Brooke graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Commercial Photography from Appalachian State University in 2011.

Brooke began her role on our Board in 2019. However, she feels it’s more fitting to say that she gets to serve on our Board. For Brooke, an evening at our Fork & Spoon was her first glance into our organization’s powerful work. As Brooke states, joining the Board has only expanded her appreciation for the caliber of people leading our mission and the impact of our vast ecosystem of services. While metrics alone are impressive, Brooke likes to visualize each number as an individual example of support – an extension of a helping hand, a moment of relief – given to one of our neighbors. She is grateful for the opportunity to participate in shaping HRDC’s future.

Although Brooke spends most of her volunteer time with HRDC, she was fortunate enough to build with Habitat for Humanity over the course of the summer in 2020. Her favorite place to spend time is anywhere under the Big Sky, although Hyalite may be her favorite place on Earth.

Ron Brey

Ron served as Bozeman’s Assistant City Manager from 1990 to 2008. After retiring, Ron joined our Board in 2011. Ron received his Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Montana in 1977, and his Masters in Science in Rural, Town, and Regional Planning from the University of Montana in 1987.

During his time with the City of Bozeman, Ron saw the important role that HRDC has played in our community. Ron has seen that HRDC provides necessary social services to assure that all Bozeman residents could obtain housing, food, training, employment and the other necessities of life. He also came to understand that HRDC was always able to respond immediately as new community needs arose. Ron believes that the dedication, hard work, and compassion of HRDC’s staff make it a real honor to serve on the Board.

Ron also serves on the Trails, Open Space and Parks Committee for the City of Bozeman, and as a volunteer with the Red Cross. One of Ron’s favorite activities is walking his beloved dog every day, enjoying many of Bozeman’s trails and parks, like Burke Park, Bozeman Creek, and the Hyalite and Mount Ellis areas. Ron and his wife Claire enjoy spending their days with family, friends, and time outdoors.
