For more than 35 years, MV Transportation, Inc. and all subsidiaries, joint ventures, partnerships and affiliates, (or “MV”) has provided safe, reliable and affordable passenger transportation services to cities, counties, municipalities, and other jurisdictional entities, as well as for private corporations, non-profit agencies, and community organizations.

MV was founded as a paratransit company by Alex and Feysan Lodde in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1975. The Loddes served as the company’s first vehicle operators, dispatchers and managers in their efforts to improve the lives of those most in need in their community by providing transportation services to the elderly and disabled. Nearly two decades later, the company has grown into a the largest private provider of paratransit services and the largest privately-owned passenger transportation contracting firm based in the United States. MV holds the longest tenure of consistent ownership of any of its competitors - the Lodde’s remain owners of the company and are members of the Board of Directors.

The company grew from its paratransit roots, providing multimode passenger transportation services across North America and currently expanding internationally. The company’s rapid growth is a clear indication of its commitment to its more than 16,000 employees, its commitment to quality and its progressive approach toward passenger transportation.

With our corporate headquarters based in Dallas, Texas and satellite support centers located in Fairfield, CA and Elk Horn, IA, MV operates more than 200 transportation contracts across North America. In addition to operations in 29 of the United States, MV operates service in Washington D.C., two Canadian Provinces and Saudi Arabia.
