ACTR assumes management of Stagecoach
January 27, 2014 pressclip:
ACTR was recently asked by the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) to provide management services for Stagecoach Transportation Services Inc. (Stagecoach) based in Randolph, VT. Stagecoach is one of Vermont’s several non-profit rural community transportation providers.
Stagecoach’s longtime executive director recently stepped down from that role, which left it in need of new leadership. ACTR was asked to assume management responsibilities due to its strong history of operational success, as well as the many similarities between the two regions.
Stagecoach provides more than 100,000 rides annually to Orange and North Windsor County residents connecting people to jobs, medical appointments, school, shopping and other vital quality of life services. VTrans, Stagecoach and ACTR are currently working out a three-year agreement for ACTR to manage administrative and operational functions for Stagecoach.
“This is a long term investment in the stability of community transportation services in Vermont and we are pleased to be in a leadership role,” Jim Moulton, Executive Director of ACTR, said.
“We are fortunate to have a solid management team at ACTR that will be able to infuse Stagecoach with skills and expertise, and steer the future of safe and efficient rural community transportation services for much of central Vermont.”
ACTR is positioned well to take on this work following its move in to the Community Transportation Center last summer.
