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.
