Veolia wins NJ Transit contract renewal

Posted on July 17, 2013

The board of directors for New Jersey Transit (NJ Transit) voted unanimously to award Veolia Transportation a seven-year contract renewal, which has a base of three years with two, two-year options.

Veolia Transportation has been successfully operating the Monmouth County Local Bus fixed-route service since 1992. In that time, Veolia has contributed training, technology and vast transit experience to the service, focusing on safety, maintenance and customer service.

NJ Transit recently transitioned to new vehicles that are equipped with “smart bus” technology with features such as external announcement capability, which can alert passengers to buses turning in intersections and real-time location reporting that will provide vehicle location and arrival information to Web-enabled devices alerting passengers to the next bus arrival. Finally, a new two-way radio system will be provided in the near future.

The new contract is effective September 2013 and will run through September 2020.
