City weighs new transit company, adding SAM fares

The city of Sandy is about to change the transit provider and begin charging fares for bus rides on SAM.

At Monday’s Sandy City Council meeting, the council will discuss the addition of fares on the current free-ride SAM. Councilors also will hear a report from Transit Manager Julie Stephens, detailing how her committee decided to recommend a newly–formed company for the contract — even though its bid price was higher than its competitor.

The panel recommended RoJoy Services, based in Sandy, to provide transportation services on equipment the city owns.

The contracted amount proposed by RoJoy was $1,289,616 for the 2013-2015 biennium.

The company not receiving the committee’s OK was MV Transportation of Dallas, Texas.

The council meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Monday, June 3, in Council Chamber in the basement of City Hall, 39250 Pioneer Blvd.
