First Transit is the largest private sector provider of transit management and contracting which manages public transport systems on behalf of transit authorities in cities such as Los Angeles, Houston and Denver.
First Transit has over 51 years of experience in fixed-route, paratransit, and shuttle services at the national and local level including brokerage call centers, on-demand response, inmate transportation, universities, and much more. We are also one of the largest providers of airport shuttle bus services in the US, serving airports in cities such as Baltimore, Philadelphia and Miami.
In the ever-changing transit industry, First Transit has found that there are three major concerns for most public agencies providing transportation services; the first concern is safety, quality and cost effectiveness. One of First Transit’s goals is to achieve a perfect balance of those three critical elements.
While efficient transportation management and operations are the cornerstones of our service delivery, each of our partnerships depends completely on the quality and capabilities of our employees. From recruiting, hiring, and retaining operators, supervisors, managers, and skilled maintenance technicians to developing career-focused transit managers, First Transit relies on having the right people in the right jobs.
