Mid-Mon Valley Transit Authority (MMVTA)

Description

The Mid Mon Valley Transit Authority (MMVTA) was created in 1985 at the time of the collapse of the steel industry. Three private companies were providing limited transit services but were each on the brink of closing. MMVTA was created when it was discovered that 22 Mid Monongahela River Valley communities located in Washington, Westmoreland, and Fayette Counties were qualified as the Monessen Urbanized Area to receive federal and state transit operating assistance. The mission of MMVTA is to provide transit services for its member municipalities and help revitalize the Mid Mon Valley. 

MMVTA is a non-operating authority. MMVTA's driver, maintenance and other vehicle support service are competitively bid to a private contractor. Currently, MMVTA's transit contractor is MV Transportation. 

MMVTA was organized under the Pennsylvania Municipalities Incorporation Act of 1945, as amended, and is governed by a 21-member board. All 22 communities are eligible to be represented. Board members are appointed by the municipality, and must be a taxpayer in, maintain a business in, or be a citizen of the municipality being represented.
