HistoryEdit

MV Transportation, Inc., was founded in 1975 in San Francisco, California, by Alex and Feysan Lodde, who continue to own the company.[5] The Loddes realized the limited transportation options for the elderly and people with disabilities and began providing transportation services throughout the city. By 1990, the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act was passed, mandating comparable transportation for passengers with disabilities. With 15 years of experience in this specialized mode of transport, MV stood ready to provide transportation solutions at scale on behalf of municipalities and transit agencies.

Since that time MV has grown, now generating over $1.3B in annual revenues and representing more than 200 public transit agencies and private companies in performing their passenger transportation service in both the U.S. and Canada. It is the largest privately-owned transportation company in North America, providing paratransit, fixed route, shuttle and school transportation services. .[5]
