MV Transportation Inc. was awarded a contract to provide paratransit services by the Baton Rouge, La.-based Capital Area Transit System (CATS).

Under terms of the five-year contract, MV will provide ADA-compliant paratransit transportation for the city of Baton Rouge. The company will be responsible for scheduling, reservations, and driver operations, as well as customer service.

As part of MV's rollout, the company will implement a driver hiring and training program and a rigorous safety program.

"We look forward to our partnership with CATS and appreciate the confidence its leaders and board of commissioners have placed in MV," said Doug Gies, sr. VP, MV Transportation, who will oversee the operational implementation. "We are confident that we can enhance the experience CATS provides Baton Rouge riders with our proven operational expertise and technical solutions."
