Transdev Awarded Contract Renewal in Hinesville, GA
The Hinesville City Council, which runs Liberty Transit, unanimously awarded a three-year contract renewal to Transdev on October 15, 2015. The contract has additional option years for a total of five years. Transdev provides fixed route bus operations and paratransit services for 14,000 weekday passengers in Hinesville on its fixed route service.
Transdev will continue to be responsible for all aspects of the operations contract including service operations, maintenance, processing ADA applications for paratransit certifications, analyzing and maintaining schedules, National Transit Database reporting, and managing the advertising program for the buses.
Transdev has been Liberty Transit’s transportation partner since its inception in 2010 and has been instrumental in determining the routes, evaluating time points and schedules, selecting the hours of operation, designing the bus logo, and more. Transdev General Manager Theodis Jackson even serves as the City’s Mobility Manager showing his investment and care for the community.
“We are fortunate to have been a part of Liberty Transit’s development from the beginning. We thank the Hinesville City Council members for their continued trust in our team and look forward to our partnership in service for the years to come,” said Derrick Breun, Transdev’s Regional Vice President responsible for overseeing this contract.
Transdev is proud of the outstanding safety record and performance of the operators at Liberty Transit – they boast an exceptional safety record of no preventable accidents since June 2013. “Our commitment to safety will continue to be a top priority. We could not do this without our employees and their dedication to safety excellence,” said General Manager Theodis Jackson.
