MV Transportation Inc., announced it has been selected to continue operation of SamTrans’ Contracted Urban Bus (CUB) fixed-route service for a new contract term, following the outcome of the district’s competitive bid process. MV has partnered with SamTrans for the operation of this service for the past 11 years, and is honored to have the opportunity to continue the partnership it has built with the transit agency.
The new contract term begins January 1, 2013 and will extend four base years with six one-year renewal options. MV will continue to operate the fleet of 59 transit buses with its team of nearly 200 transportation professionals.
“MV is honored to be selected once again for the operation of this service and looks forward to the continuation of this successful partnership,” said John Siragusa president of operations for MV’s northwest region. “We know the service, we know the community and most importantly, we know the passengers we are proud to serve every day.”
Utilizing a purpose-built facility in downtown San Francisco as its base of operations and maintenance, MV’s management team has worked closely with SamTrans to provide quality service for passengers. MV’s record includes achieving a record-breaking number of miles between road calls and exceeding the standards for on-time performance and accident frequency over the past contract term.
