Veolia earns L.A. contract extension

Posted on October 10, 2012

By a unanimous vote, the Los Angeles City Council awarded a five-year contract to Veolia Transportation to operate fixed-route service. This is a renewal of a contract operated by Veolia and its predecessor company for more than 10 years.

Known as DASH Downtown and DASH Mid City, the service is frequent, scheduled fixed-route service operating in downtown L.A. and in neighborhoods adjacent to downtown.

The new contract goes into effect in November and includes operation of the city’s 130 vehicles in the fixed-route fleet.

Veolia currently provides this service through operations at two facilities. The new contract will combine both services into a single contract and will be operated from one new facility.
