Celebrating 50 years of Partnership with the City of Phoenix
As we embark on 2021, we are so proud to recognize that 2020 marked the 50-year anniversary of our partnership with the City of Phoenix to provide safe, reliable and efficient transportation to the City’s residents. How exciting for us to be part of one of the country’s longest-running partnerships of the public and private sectors focused on bus operations, service quality and maintenance.
When asked his thoughts about this milestone, Dave Todd, general manager for Phoenix, said “we are incredibly grateful to work with such a supportive and innovative client. We have a very collaborative and open relationship that is built on mutual respect, years of trust and a shared goal of providing the very best service to the riding public. For that, we are fortunate.”
Dave Todd continued to say that it’s his employees who provide the differentiating factor. He credits the contract’s success to his team’s strong health and safety culture, the service ethic and longevity of many employees, and the team’s and client’s openness to new technology and innovation. “I am incredibly proud of our employees,” Todd commented. “Our staff shows such dedication, commitment and flexibility every day. This had been especially true through 2020, as they had to address and adjust to all the challenges brought forth by the pandemic.”
“Transdev is also proud that the City of Phoenix has continued to show its confidence in our capabilities by awarding us another five-year contract, with an optional two years,” said Transdev U.S. CEO, Laura Hendricks. “We are excited to continue this longstanding relationship, to innovate and grow, and to help the agency and the City achieve their vision for mobility.”
