Transdev North America has announced that it is continuing to expand its strong partnership with the City of Colorado Springs by adding Mountain Metropolitan Transit‘s (MMT) fixed-route and deviated fixed-route services to its Colorado Springs set of contracts.

Transdev has been partnering with the City of Colorado Springs since 2016 when it signed its first contact with it to maintain its fixed-route fleet. In 2019, Transdev began operating MMT’s paratransit services and in 2022 added MMT’s Downtown Shuttle service to its portfolio. The Downtown Shuttle is now folded into the recently added fixed-route operations.

“We are excited that our client was pleased with the service we delivered with their inaugural downtown shuttle that they are now entrusting us with their complete fixed-route system,” said Derrick Breun, Regional Vice President of Transdev’s mid-south region. “We look forward to leveraging our technological expertise and the synergies that exist across all our Colorado Springs contacts, while continuing to focus on our commitment to safety, reliability and customer service. We remain committed to regularly adding value to our client and we anticipate making a positive impact on our expanding passenger base.”

“We’re looking forward to our partnership with Transdev to provide fixed-route bus service to our customers”, said Lan Rao, Acting Transit Services Manager. “With this transition we are hopeful that we will be able to deliver reliable, accessible and sustainable transportation to the Pikes Peak region.”
