First Transit secures 3 U. contracts

Posted on October 15, 2012

First Transit was awarded transit contracts for Buffalo State and East Georgia State College. At both institutions, the contractor will operate fixed-route campus shuttle service for the students and staff.

At First Transit’s Buffalo State location, the company will operate shuttle service, which will assist the university in transporting 200 displaced students to and from their temporary dorm building to school as their permanent dorm rooms are going through renovations for the next nine months.

At East Georgia State College, First Transit will provide shuttle service for more than 1,800 students and faculty to and from the college for the next five years.

Additionally, the College of Staten Island (CSI) renewed its university shuttle service contract with First Transit for an additional five years.

As part of the City University of New York (CUNY) System, First Transit will transport CSI students and faculty daily to and from campus. From this location, First Transit will consist of 13 drivers and staff, operating five shuttle buses throughout the campus.
