MV Transportation lands VIA paratransit contract

Posted on November 8, 2018

MV Transportation Inc. was awarded a contract to provide paratransit services by San Antonio’s VIA Metropolitan Transit, beginning this November.

Under terms of the four-year contract, MV will provide curb-to-curb ADA-compliant paratransit transportation for the San Antonio and Bexar County region. The company will be responsible for operations, maintenance, dispatch, and safety within the VIAtrans paratransit service system.

As part of MV's start-up efforts, the company will implement a driver hiring and training program and rigorous safety program in addition to purchasing a new fleet of approximately 144 vehicles — including wheelchair accessible Dodge Caravans and Ford Transit Vans.
