Among the more than 130 national and international divisions operated by MV Transportation, Grand Valley Transit (GVT) has been named 2014 “Best of the Best” in the small division category.
From 2013 to 2014, GVT had a:
- 17 percent improvement in Total Accident Frequency Rate
- 61 percent reduction in Preventable Accident Frequency Rate
- 72.5 percent improvement in preventable claims
- 72 percent improvement in Injury Frequency Rate
“This award is a great accomplishment for GVT but more importantly for our drivers and staff,” said Todd Hollenbeck, Mesa County Regional Transportation Planning Director. “Without their continuous dedication, improvement and commitment to safety, we would not have the great transit system that we have.”
MV Transportation officials will be in Grand Junction this week to celebrate with GVT.
