Transdev will continue operations of the employee shuttle for BJC HealthCare. The contract renewal will continue the company’s nearly two-decade-old relationship with one of the nation’s largest non-profit health care organizations serving the St. Louis, Southern Illinois, and mid-Missouri regions.
The seven-route system serves the BJC HealthCare Medical Campus, composed of Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children's Hospital, doctor offices, clinics, schools, and pharmacies. Both hospitals are affiliated with Washington University School of Medicine.
Transdev recently completed a transition of 50% of the fleet to new vehicles when increased demand fueled service expansion in 2014. As part of the new contract, the company will replace the remaining half of the 21-vehicle fleet with new vehicles. The network carries almost 28,000 employees at BJC HealthCare from various locations around the sprawling campus. Transdev is responsible for all costs associated with operations, including fuel, labor, vehicles and maintenance.
