    Our strong commitment to the people of Nassau County was recognized through this contract renewal. We are proud to connect people to the places they care about, through a safe and reliable service.

    Laura Hendricks, CEO for Transdev U.S.

    NICE Bus relies on the work and commitment of 850 employees and manages the operations of 280 buses assigned to fixed routes and a fleet of over 100 vehicles dedicated to adapted transport for people with reduced mobility (with ADA – Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 – eligibility certification). In all, more than 300,000 journeys are made every year.

    We are strengthening ever more our activities in North America. Since the acquisition of First Transit last March, Transdev has become the leading public transportation operator in the United States and Canada. In the two largest countries in the Americas, we are meeting the needs of every local authority, with the key challenge to render mobility accessible to the majority of people. We will be transporting nearly 400 million passengers a year. At the same time, we are supporting transit authorities in their energy transition, through the increasing deployment of vehicles with an ever reduced carbon footprint.

    Thierry Mallet, Chairman and CEO of Transdev.
