Under the terms of the new four year agreement, MV Transportation will provide management, maintenance and operations for METROLift, which serves Houston and the surrounding areas.

MV will begin to transition the service from the previous provider on May 1 and expects to transition the entire fleet of 118 cutaway buses by August 2011.
