RATP Dev USA to manage Yuma County's transit service

Posted on June 4, 2018

RATP Dev USA was awarded the contract to manage Yuma County Area Transit (YCAT), the transit services for the city of Yuma County, Ariz. Yuma County Intergovernmental Public Transportation Authority (YCIPTA) selected RATP Dev USA through a national competitive process that awarded the contract based on best value procurement. Contract services are set to begin July 1, 2018 and will cover an initial period of three years, with seven additional one-year options.

RATP Dev USA has appointed Elizabeth Williams to serve as YCAT’s new GM.

Under the terms of the contract, RATP Dev USA will directly supervise YCAT’s daily operations for the fixed-route and paratransit operating services in Yuma County. Presently, YCAT operates eleven fixed-routes, and a demand responsive service throughout the southwestern quadrant of Yuma County. The fixed-route system operates 37,000 revenue hours annually. The YCAT fleet consists of 24 buses, four trolleys and three minivans, in addition to various support vehicles.

“RATP Dev USA is thrilled to be working with YCIPTA to bring our expertise to the citizens of Yuma County,” said Blaine Rigler, president of RATP Dev USA. “Through our experience in operating fixed route and paratransit services across the country, we are confident that we will uphold excellent public transportation for the Yuma County community.”
