With this partnership, MV becomes LIT’s Founding Sponsor, the organization’s first corporate sponsor since it’s founding in 2016. MV also gains a seat on the LIT Board of Directors and will have a scholarship established in its name to be awarded annually to a Latino dedicated to a career in public transportation.

“We're extremely excited that a company with the heritage of MV’s has partnered with LIT,” said Milo Victoria, President of the LIT Board of Directors. “As an industry leader, they are uniquely qualified to help us meet our goals leveraging their national reach and strong commitment to diversity.”
