RICHMOND, VA., October 9th, 2020 — the Greensboro Transit Agency (GTA) has awarded UZURV, the Adaptive Transportation Network Company, a three-year contract to supply the city of Greensboro, North Carolina with specialized ADA transportation services.

The contract was awarded through a competitive RFP process in which UZURV’S response demonstrated overall value, a proven track record of service, and a 99% on time performance rating for the community.. With this award, the program builds on GTA and UZURV’s two-year successful pilot program with iRide, which received significant public support for efficient performance and positive community impact.

This popular supplemental transportation program has provided services to thousands in our community living with disabilities by providing them with freedom, flexibility, and peace of mind while meeting their everyday transportation needs.” said JoHanna Cockburn, Greensboro Department of Transportation Director.
