Veolia launches service for LADOT

Posted on March 12, 2009

Veolia Transportation began service for its newest DASH contract – the Downtown DASH - earlier this month for the Los Angeles Department of Transportation.

With traffic congestion a serious problem for the downtown area, Veolia implemented a multi-part strategy, including updated technology, rigorous driver training and improved operational coordination to enhance customer service. It also spent the last year developing a new facility for this project, which has six maintenance bays, on-site fueling and a new bus wash station.

The newest contract for Veolia serves the Downtown Los Angeles area seven days a week, with eight routes utilizing 63 propane powered 30-foot buses.

In addition to the Downtown DASH, Veolia Transportation also operates two of the seven DASH segments in Los Angeles managed by LADOT; the LA DASH 3 in the San Fernando Valley and the LA DASH 5-A in Southeast Los Angeles.
