Veolia wins Napa Valley contract renewal

Posted on August 13, 2009

Veolia Transportation was awarded a five-year contract renewal by Napa County Transportation and Planning Agency (NCTPA) for its The Vine fixed-route service and VineGo paratransit service. The contract begins September 1, 2009, and has two one-year options.

"Winning this contract renewal is very exciting for everyone at Veolia Transportation. We've had a presence in Napa Valley operating transit for the last 17 years and greatly value our partnership with NCTPA," said Ron Bushman, regional vice president, Northern California, for Veolia. "Looking ahead to the next five years, we plan to introduce some of the latest technology, like Wireless DriveCam, which will provide enhanced safety to both services."

Bushman said Veolia Transportation and NCTPA will also introduce technology to make the service more customer-friendly, including real time electronic messages, Google Transit and WiFi, which are all scheduled for the transit system beginning in early 2010.

In addition to fixed route and paratransit services, the company also operates a deviated fixed-route service, plus local circulators and express service.
