MV awarded Spokane paratransit contract

Posted on April 16, 2012

MV Transportation Inc. received a contract to operate supplemental paratransit service for Washington-based Spokane Transit Authority (STA) beginning January 2013.

Under the terms of the new five-year agreement, MV will partner with STA to cover overflow paratransit service and supplement the agency’s base service.

MV will replace the incumbent contractor beginning Jan. 1, 2013, employing a local team of approximately 75 employees to operate a 42-vehicle fleet. Overall, MV will be responsible for supplemental operations, and night and weekend dispatching, as well as maintenance.

In addition, MV will add transit technology tools to enhance overall service levels, including on-time performance monitoring software and maintenance software to increase efficiency and productivity and improve the current system. Many of these tools will be provided by MV to STA for use in their directly operated service.
