Foothill Transit awards management contract to Veolia

Posted on June 17, 2013

West Covina, Calif.-based Foothill Transit’s board voted 5 to 0 in favor of awarding a contract to Veolia Transportation to manage its customer service and transit stores.

Last May, the board voted to establish the agency’s first ever in-house management team, resulting in a proposed amendment to Veolia's management contract with the agency. That amendment was negotiated and accepted by Veolia Transportation, and then, awarded by the board at a special meeting. 

Foothill Transit will not change its current operations contracts in place at its Arcadia and Pomona maintenance facilities.

Veolia's management of Foothill Transit's customer service functions will begin on July 1, 2013.
