Following successful contract negotiations and approval of the final agreement, MV Transportation will transition the 70 bus operation from the in-house model run by The RTC to MV’s turnkey model, providing maintenance, management and operations. The RTC estimates MV’s approach to save approximately $22 million over the life of the contract. MV Transportation is scheduled to begin service on July 1, 2011.
“It is an honor to be selected by The RTC to service the residents of Washoe County. We look forward to working a smooth transition of service and a strong business partnership,” said John Siragusa, president of MV's west coast operations.
MV Transportation also operates fixed route and paratransit services for Carson City, Nev.
