MV to continue operation of Ohio transit services

Posted on January 13, 2014

MV Transportation Inc. has been selected to continue operation of the deviated fixed-route and demand-response (paratransit) services for the Ashtabula County (Ohio) Transportation System (ACTS). Selected by the Board of Ashtabula County Commissioners, MV's new contract began on January 1, 2014 for a one-year term with the option to renew for an additional four years up to a maximum of five years.

Under the terms of the new contract, MV will continue to manage operations, vehicle maintenance, customer service, scheduling and dispatch for service in Ashtabula County and the neighboring townships. In addition, MV's operation will support ACTS's plans to reinstate Saturday fixed-route service beginning January 18. The transit operation will be provided with a mix of MV and client-furnished buses. MV will employ approximately 12 professional operators and staff to run the service.

"MV is proud of the service provided in Ashtabula County for the last nine years and we are truly honored to be awarded a new contract that will allow us to remain in the community and partner with ACTS for possibly another five years," said Kevin Klika president/COO for MV Transportation.

Founded in 1975, MV currently operates five transit contracts in Ohio.
