New Orleans — Veolia Selected as Operator

Rail Transit Online, August 2008

The Regional Transit Authority board of directors has tentatively selected Veolia Transportation to operate the city's streetcars and buses for the next three years.

Veolia won a competition against First Transit Inc. and Transit Management of Southeast Louisiana, an in-house employee group that has run the system for the past six years.

A final agreement is being negotiated and is expected to be signed in early September. The deal includes an option for a two-year extension.
