Transdev and LANTA Embark on New Partnership

Safety Corner

We are excited to announce that starting July 1, 2022, we are launching our new partnership with the Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority (LANTA) out of a brand new, beautiful 50,000 square foot facility.

As part of our new partnership, Transdev is contracting for both Lehigh and Northampton Counties and Carbon Transit. The maintenance and operations of LANTAVan paratransit services and Carbon Transit (CT) Services (fixed route and paratransit) includes the management of 99 vehicles and 109 team members. This translates to approximately 350,000 trips for LANTAVan and 35,000 trips for CT. Carbon Transit is administered by the Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority as a division of LANTA.

LANTA Executive Director, Owen O’Neil recently said, “Throughout our procurement process, we were impressed with Transdev’s thorough training programs, operating procedures and use of technology. We look forward to our new partnership.”

Bill Spraul, RVP for our south central region, added, “This is another outstanding opportunity for Transdev to partner with an excellent transit agency. We are excited to work with LANTA to provide safe, reliable, professional service to the Lehigh and Northampton communities and customers. We are looking forward to showcasing our technology offerings, along with our expertise and experience, that we are confident will significantly improve the LANTA service once implemented.  Our new partnership with LANTA is another testament to our commitment to safety, service and sustainability.”

Background on LANTA:

The Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority was founded in 1972. The transit agency provides public, fixed-route bus service throughout the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania, including the cities of Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton. 2022 marks LANTA’s 50th anniversary.
