Transdev announced it has expanded its partnership with TriMet, in Portland Oregon, with the recent addition of the operations of its LIFT Operations Contact Center.
Transdev currently operates TriMet’s paratransit bus operations. This new contract includes the reservations, scheduling, customer service, and dispatch functions of TriMet’s LIFT program (ADA paratransit).
As part of this expanded partnership, Transdev is now responsible for an additional 49 employees. Transdev had already been operating TriMet’s fleet of 235 paratransit vehicles with more than 220 employees, in support of its original agreement to operate its LIFT Paratransit services which started October 1, 2021.
“We are excited to grow this great partnership we have with TriMet,” said Ron Bushman, Transdev’s regional VP for the northwest. “We appreciate the confidence TriMet has in Transdev and we look forward to leveraging some of our technology tools to improve our customers’ overall passenger experience. We continue to strive to provide safe, reliable and innovation solutions for our clients and customers alike."
