The Department of Planning and Growth Management is pleased to announce the operations contract for VanGO, Charles County’s public transit service that operates both fixed route and specialized door to door programs has been awarded to MV Transportation.  The current contract is expiring and per County policy, the services were competitively bid this past March. 

MV Transportation, a national transit operations firm, will assume operations on Saturday, July 1.  They are taking steps to hire employees currently working with VanGO Transportation.

“Transit staff has been working closely with MV Transportation’s transition team members since the award of the contract and is confident of a seamless turnover on July 1,” said Chief of Transit Jeffry Barnett. “Riders should expect to see an immediate improvement with the addition of new buses complimenting this contract award.”

Due to the contract transition, the VanGO DoubleMap bus tracking system will not be reporting bus locations on Saturday, July 1 but is expected to be operational by the afternoon of Monday, July 3. The County regrets any inconvenience this may cause.
