American Logistics wins Calif. paratransit contract

Posted on April 20, 2011

American Logistics Co. (ALC), a national passenger transportation management company, was awarded a contract by Northern California's Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA) to operate the agency's Wheels Dial-a-Ride ADA Paratransit Service.

In selecting ALC, LAVTA will save more than $5 million over the seven-year duration of the paratransit services contract, according to the company.

ALC's Coordinated Transportation Model demonstrates the company's ability to provide paratransit solutions that "yield significant cost savings with unyielding customer service."

ALC was one of several transportation service providers vying for the LAVTA Wheels Paratransit Service contract during a competitive bidding process that began in December 2010 and culminated in a final recommendation by the evaluation committee to select ALC in March 2011. The LAVTA board of directors approved the recommendation of the evaluation committee on March 10, 2011.

ALC will begin operating the Wheels Dial-a-Ride ADA Paratransit Service for LAVTA on July 1, 2011, including trip reservations, scheduling and dispatching services.
