PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Palm Beach Post reported that Metro Mobility, which provides paratransit service in Palm Beach County, asked the county to waive more than $2.5 million in fines and to end its contract.
Metro is also requesting that the county pay bonuses to keep key employees on the job, sell the next contractor 194 vehicles while assuming about $2.5 million of Metro’s debt for those vehicles, a larger per-mile fee, and for the county to waive Metro’s performance bond.
Metro has just less than four years left on its five-year, $90 million contract, which began last year after it underbid the next lowest company by $16 million.
Since Metro took over as sole provider of van service, rider complaints increased significantly. For the full story, click here.
