Transdev announced the extension of its 28-year partnership with Community Transit to serve the Snohomish County community in the Seattle metropolitan area.

“It’s exciting to reflect how our relationship with Community Transit has evolved since it first started in 1996,” said Mark Elias, Northwest Regional Vice President, Transdev U.S. “Our teams will continue to bring their technological and innovative expertise to the table to support Community Transit’s priorities moving forward.”

Transdev will continue to provide operations and maintenance for Community Transit’s commuter bus and Sound Transit ST Express service, which also includes dispatch and road supervision. This encompasses oversight of close to 200 employees and 127 vehicles, 97 of which are double-decker buses.

“We have worked with Community Transit hand-in-hand over the years, not only providing safe and reliable service – but, adjusting as appropriate, to meet the changing needs of our passengers and community,” added Elias. “We look forward to leveraging our maintenance and safety experience to regularly add value and enhance the customer experience to benefit both Community Transit and our passengers for years to come.”

Transdev's Partnership History

Transdev announced another partnership in 2023. The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) awarded its fixed-route transit operations contract to First Transit, now owned by Transdev.

The new contract began on July 1, 2023.

As a result of the acquisition, Transdev is responsible for the operations, maintenance, and dispatch of RTC’s fixed-route transit services, as well as system safety and community engagement.

In July of 2023, Transdev announced the expansion of its partnership with the Regional Transportation District (RTD)’s paratransit services in Denver, CO, specifically its Access-a-Ride Dedicated and Access-a-Ride Non-Dedicated paratransit services.
