Pa. agency taps National Express for paratransit

Posted on June 1, 2015

Greensburg, Pa. — The Westmoreland County Transit Authority awarded National Express Transit Co. a three-year, $14.2 million contract to run its paratransit system, effective July 1, TribLive reported.

The system, which was previously operated by separate human service programs, has been plagued by problems since the authority took over its operation two years ago. The agency believes having one service provider should resolve some of the issues it was having.

The paratransit system will also consider a proposal for fare hikes for some of the longer rides offered in the subsidized program for people who use human service programs. The amount of the proposed fare hikes hasn't been determined. For the full story, click here.
