Transdev awarded Colo. Springs fleet maintenance contract

Posted on June 23, 2016

Transdev has been awarded a maintenance contract with the City of Colorado Springs. The three-year deal started April 1 after the Colorado Springs City Council voted on the proposal earlier this spring.

Transdev will be the exclusive maintenance provider for Mountain Metropolitan Transit. Maintenance workers have already started making repairs and going through routine inspections on the 175-vehicle fleet. Transdev will leverage years of expertise and best practices in vehicle management to excel in the maintenance-only contract in Colorado Springs.

“We hit the ground running and are already hearing praise from our customer on the dedication to the job and the quick turnaround time to get necessary repairs made,” said Ron Bushman, Regional VP, Northwest Region. “Our team is dedicated and has a rapid-response mentality to getting vehicles back in operating order while ensuring the continued safety of drivers and passengers.”

The MMT boasts an annual ridership of 3 million passengers on a total of 26 fixed routes within and beyond the city. The bus system provides 11,000 one-way trips per day. The forward-thinking agency also provides alternative commuting solutions with a yearly ridership of nearly 65,000 in vanpools. Paratransit accounts for 210,479 passengers per year. Kenneth Gianino, after a long career with the Mountain Metropolitan Transit agency, will serve as the general manager.
