California’s Foothill Transit Executive Board voted to renew its contract with Transdev for Transit Store Operations and Bus Stop Maintenance Services for four more years with additional option years. The board also voted to exercise its option to extend Transdev’s contract for four additional years to continue to operate 60% of Foothill’s bus services.

Transdev has provided Transit Store Operations and Bus Stop Maintenance services for the past 30 years. This includes management and operation of Foothill Transit’s four Transit Stores; staffing of its decentralized call center; and armor and merchant services for all Transit Stores. Bus stop maintenance service includes installation, removal and maintenance of signage; cleaning of transit centers and park & ride facilities; and more.

Transdev has also operated bus services from Foothill Transit's operations and maintenance facility in Arcadia since October 2014. The contract extension was based on Transdev’s track record, enabling Foothill Transit to meet their ambitious mobility objectives, including:

  • Expanding service.
  • Operating DuartEbus service.
  • Completing bus rehabilitation and repowering projects for 60 buses.
  • Supporting new technology projects including replacement of the Computer Aided Dispatch/Automatic Vehicle Location system.
  • Incorporating electric vehicle technology into the Arcadia fleet.
