The study also concluded there is a significant gap between wages and benefits offered by public versus private operators, indicating that private companies are less likely to provide quality paratransit services.MARTA’s paratransit workers will not only face lower wages, they stand to lose pensions, healthcare, and for some, their jobs.

Atlanta Progressive News previously reported that MARTA’s decision to consider privatization was based on the findings of an international consulting firm that the agency hired to address budget shortfalls.
A report by the Center for Sustainable Urban Development at Columbia University challenged those findings, concluding that “privatization of public transit through competitive bidding serves to reduce the standard of living for workers and diminish the transportation service provided to communities.” The Columbia University report cited numerous studies that support this conclusion, including one sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration.
One passenger told APN that calling MARTA to check on the van’s status “only makes it worse.” But David Ates, a lawyer representing MARTA’s disabled clients and one of its judge-appointed monitors, says outsourcing to MV is unlikely to fix that.
“We don’t think there’s enough incentive provided to MV to reach certain on-time performance levels,” Ates told APN, referring to the problem of paratransit drivers failing to pick up clients on time.
Ironically, the committee in charge of that report included MARTA’s current CEO, Keith Parker.
The study that Parker oversaw found a direct link between low wages and high turnover, and between high turnover and poor paratransit service.
In the lead up to the board meeting, MARTA received nearly 200 letters decrying privatization.
During the meeting, the public comment period lasted forty minutes and was overwhelmingly comprised of speakers opposed to the privatization plan. Vincent Fort (D-Atlanta) spoke, pointing to MV Transportation’s dismal track record in California.
