Paratransit Services, a Bremerton, Wash.-based nonprofit company, was awarded a six-year contract to operate San Andreas, Calif.-based Calaveras Transit — the serves the central California county of Calaveras.
The award to Paratransit Services, which was the outcome of a competitive procurement process that began last December, was formally approved recently by the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors. The new contract will take effect July 1.
Calaveras Transit is a deviated fixed-route public transit system serving communities within Calaveras County and extending to Columbia College in neighboring Tuolumne County.
The new contract is a nice addition to Paratransit Services' other locations in California, where they currently operate systems for the Counties of Tehama, Glenn and Lake and provide specialized service in the city of Redding.
