Southland was founded in 2001 and has rapidly built a reputation as one of California's most effective transit companies. Southland Transit's predecessor sister company, San Gabriel Transit, Inc. (SGT), was one of the first companies to provide public paratransit services in Southern California. SGT has built a strong reputation by effectively operating some of the most difficult demand response operations in the industry. The Los Angeles ASI countywide ADA service contracts the company operates have consistently been the best performing segment of the Access Service network. The company had also performed well on multiple fixed-route and dial-a-ride engagements prior to transferring those services to Southland Transit upon its formation in 2001.
Because Southland Transit is California owned and operated, the highest levels of management and their expertise are directly available to our clients and project managers. Both the Vice President and Director of Operations regularly visit every project facility. Every member of a project staff has available to them the immediate expertise and assistance of corporate managers with the experience to ensure that the best decision is made in every instance.
