Anchorage, Alaska – April 18, 2007 − The Municipality of Anchorage has
selected MV Transportation to operate the area's ADA and other coordinated
paratransit services beginning July 1.

Under the terms of the $12 million, three-year contract, MV will operate 45
vehicles and employ more than 70 employees. MV will use the Trapeze
scheduling software, on-vehicle Mentor mobile data terminals and several MV-

performance and service quality.

Also, MV's driver training will include several hours of sensitivity training
provided in conjunction with local disability and elder care advocacy groups and
outreach centers.

“As a company that caters to the transportation needs of seniors and people with

awareness,” said Kevin Klika, MV's President of West Coast Operations, whose
team of seasoned transit professionals will manage the contract.

Municipality of Anchorage, and promises to provide the community with
professional service.

With this contract award, Alaska becomes the 27th state in which MV operates.

United States. MV employs more than 10,000 dedicated transit professionals.
