Transdev announced its new Diamante level partnership with Latinos In Transit (LIT).
“We are excited to launch this incredible partnership with LIT,” said Laura Hendricks, CEO, Transdev U.S. “Transdev has been supportive of LIT and its mission since its inception in 2016, so formalizing our partnership, at its highest level, was the next logical step for us.”

This partnership allows us, as a company, to lead by example, while offering our diverse, employee population a chance to get involved and support this emerging, transit association.”
“Having an organization like Transdev supporting us at such a prominent level speaks volumes to their commitment to diversity and inclusion and to the industry’s evolution as a whole,” said Alva Carrasco, president of the Latinos In Transit board of directors. “We are appreciative of their sponsorship and look forward to the incredible progress and impact LIT will have on the transit industry with Transdev as a partner.”
