Supes OK MTA paratransit deal 

A five-year, $118 million contract between the Municipal Transportation Agency and a private paratransit contractor was adopted Tuesday by the Board of Supervisors in a unanimous vote.

The MTA, which oversees Muni, has for the past 28 years contracted with private companies to provide the paratransit service. The contract approved by the board Tuesday is with Veolia Transportation Inc., a national mobility group with ties to the Bay Area.

Paratransit services meet the transportation needs of The City’s disabled and senior-citizen population.

The MTA’s board of directors had previously approved the contract, but the value of the agreement requires approval by the Board of Supervisors.

The five-year contract, which would expire on June 30, 2015, has an option to increase the agreement for an additional five years upon its completion.
