Breaking: MV Loses Milwaukee County Bus Contract
Milwaukee County panel shot down the pending contract between the county and
Dallas-based MV Transportation to operate the Milwaukee County Transit System,
calling the bidding process “arbitrary and unreasonable.”
RFP process was so flawed, they found, that an intent to award a contract based on
it cannot be made. The decision to award the half-billion dollar contract to MV was reversed.
is a huge blow for Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, who has championed
MV, and his aides’ handing of the RFP process.
