MV awarded Pa., Calif. paratransit contracts

Posted on July 20, 2011

MV Transportation Inc. was unanimously selected by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) to operate CCT Connect door-to-door transportation service for senior citizens and ADA passengers in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. The new five year contract is set to begin July 28 and represents $3.5 million in savings for SEPTA.

MV Transportation has a history of successful work with the SEPTA; this is MV's third paratransit contract with the agency since 2004. Due to this relationship MV was able to provide extensive cost efficiencies by expanding and upgrading its existing facility to also accommodate housing the new CCT Connect service. MV Transportation will run management, maintenance and operations of the entire 118 bus CCT Connect fleet.

The company now operates a total of 189 paratransit vehicles in the state of Pennsylvania. All are equipped with DriveCam fleet monitoring capabilities to ensure the highest level of safety and service.

Additionally, MV announced that the Calif.-based Monterey Salinas board of directors approved a two-year contract extension for the operation of over 30 percent of the Monterey County's transit services, including paratransit, dial-a-ride and a portion of fixed-route service. MV has held this contract for Monterey Salinas Transit (MST) since 2004.

MV Transportation is based in Northern California and has more than 100 contracts in the state.
