Veolia wins Calif. paratransit, fixed-route contract

Posted on December 6, 2013

The Calif.-based Redding Area Bus Authority (RABA) approved the first two-year contract extension for Veolia Transportation. The extension, which was recommended by the RABA staff, is set to begin July 1, 2014.

Veolia operates both the fixed-route and paratransit services with 38 vehicles and 63 employees. In 2012, Veolia installed SmartDrive technology in vehicles. SmartDrive is a video event-based recorder used to train and assist coach operators in safe driving and fuel efficiency.

Currently, Veolia is assisting RABA with a system-wide route re-design and modification scheduled to go into effect in July of 2014.

RABA's service area centers on Redding, the county seat of Shasta County, located at the northern end of the Sacramento Valley, approximately 160 miles north of Sacramento. Veolia Transportation has operated the RABA service since 1997.
