First Transit was awarded the DASH Downtown and Mid-City fixed-route service for the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT). First Transit will provide drivers for the management, operations and maintenance for a portion of the 32-route operation with 115 buses.
“We are proud to partner with the LADOT providing fixed-route service to 27 communities of the Los Angeles area,” says Nick Promponas, sr. VP, west coast operations, at First Transit. “Our team is looking forward to providing a great passenger experience.”
In keeping with First Transit and LADOT’s leading position in leveraging technology to enhance passenger, driver, and road safety, the group are transitioning the DASH fleet to the Mobile Eye® Shield Plus collision-avoidance system.
