MV to provide fixed-route services for Calif.'s LAVTA

Posted on May 10, 2018

MV Transportation Inc. was awarded a contract to provide fixed-route transportation services by Calif.’s Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA). With the new seven-year contract, MV will extend its partnership with LAVTA to more than two-decades of providing fixed-route bus services for those who live or work in and visit the Tri-Valley Region of the San Francisco Bay Area, to include the cities of Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, and unincorporated areas of Alameda County.

MV will be responsible for all operational activities of the LAVTA Wheels bus service including safety, training, dispatch, maintenance, vehicle cleaning and washing, bus shelter maintenance, road supervision, and accounting. MV and LAVTA will also collaborate on new programs focused on retaining existing riders and increasing the attraction of new riders.

“MV’s more than 15-year commitment to the success of our system is critical as we continue our work to grow ridership and improve mobility throughout the Tri-Valley community,” said LAVTA Executive Director Michael Tree.

“MV is proud to have been a part of LAVTA’s success and growth over the years, including the introduction of bus rapid transit (BRT), hybrid diesel-electric buses, traffic signal priority for buses, school service, solar lighting at bus shelters, and the relocation of the train depot to the Livermore Transit Center,” said Laura Hansen, VP at MV Transportation. “We remain committed to continuously improving overall system efficiency and bringing new and innovative ideas to LAVTA and the passengers in the community.”
