This type of messaging is an important reminder for us to share with our teams, passengers and communities and to show we care about their health and safety.
We also took the opportunity to remind the community that the federal mask mandate on all public transportation vehicles has been extended through January 18, 2022.Transdev’s proposal, their new technology and systems, and the opportunities they identified for improvement,” said Collie Greenwood, MARTA’s Deputy General Manager. “We look forward to the positive and observable difference they can bring to our service and to our Mobility passengers.”
From a scheduling and dispatching perspective, Transdev will be managing 15,000 certified participants, who average 2,400 trips per day during the week and another 1,200 trip per day on the weekends.
