Transdev announced that 2020 marked the 50-year anniversary of its partnership with the City of Phoenix to provide safe, reliable, and efficient transportation to the area’s residents. It is one of the country’s longest-running partnerships of the public and private sectors focused on bus operations, service quality, and maintenance.
“We are incredibly grateful to work with such a supportive and innovative client,” said Dave Todd, Transdev’s GM for the Phoenix contract. “We have a very collaborative and open relationship that is built on mutual respect, years of trust and a shared goal of providing the very best service to the riding public.”
Transdev sees itself as more than just a provider of public transportation services. The company prides itself in being engaged members of the community. Whether it be supporting the City’s transportation needs for large-scale community events — like March Madness or the Superbowl — or community outreach events to benefit those in need, Transdev has been and continues to be part of the fabric of the Phoenix community and an employer of choice.
Dave Todd continued to say that it’s his employees who provide the differentiating factor. He credits the contract’s success to his team’s strong health and safety culture, the service ethic and longevity of many employees, and the team’s and client’s openness to new technology and innovation. “I am incredibly proud of our employees,” Todd commented. “Our staff shows such dedication, commitment, and flexibility every day. This had been especially true through 2020, as they had to address and adjust to all the challenges brought forth by the pandemic.”
