The RTC voted unanimously to award its Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Paratransit Service contract to Veolia Transportation. The vote took place at the regularly scheduled monthly meeting of the Regional Transportation Commission on Thursday, April 10, 2014. The contract is one of the largest paratransit contracts in the U.S. and represents $409 million over ten years. The service is estimated at approximately one million passenger trips annually. The contract term is five years with (one) three year, and (one) two year renewal options.

“Coming back to Las Vegas is exciting and gratifying for us”, said Veolia’s Transit Division President, Ken Westbrook. “We plan to introduce state-of-the-art technology, advanced safety and training, and a stronger culture of customer service. Our overall goal is to make paratransit service safer and more efficient while maximizing reliability and comfort for our passengers.” The new contract, which includes scheduling, maintenance and operations, is scheduled to begin in August 2014. Veolia will employ 570 staff which includes 449 vehicle drivers, operating 308 vehicles. The paratransit services operations will be housed at both RTC facility locations in order to better serve the Las Vegas community.
