SOUTH BEND, Ind., April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobility Ventures LLC, designer and manufacturer of the acclaimed MV-1, the only American vehicle designed from the ground up in support of people who use wheelchairs, is proud to announce the MV-1 is available on the General Services Administration [GSA] Schedule. Federal agencies will now be able to efficiently order and take delivery of the MV-1 for their fleet transportation needs.
The MV-1 is redefining accessible transportation with a built-in side-entry ramp, ample head room, and the ability to safely accommodate two wheelchair users at a time—one of whom rides in the front—.making it the perfect solution for government fleets and commercial use. The MV-1 is also the only vehicle in its class available with a standard gasoline engine or a factory-installed clean-burning Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fuel option.
More than 2,000 MV-1s are currently in fleet service around the country, and being added to the GSA schedule will make it much easier for U.S. government agencies to augment their fleets with this innovative and revolutionary vehicle.
"Mobility Ventures is proud to have the MV-1 added to the General Services Administration Schedule and make available to government agencies an American-built vehicle that fills a void in current transportation solutions for people who use wheelchairs," said Pat Kemp, Mobility Ventures Executive Vice President.
With more than 115 dealerships in the MV-1 network in the United States and overseas, the MV-1 is expanding choice in transportation for families and taxi, livery and paratransit fleets.
Master's Transportation Inc., based in Kansas City, Mo., will be the contract holder and will administer and manage the delivery of MV-1s to GSA customers with after sales support from the nationwide MV-1 network of more than 115 dealers.
Government agencies interested in purchasing MV-1s for their fleets under the contract number GS-30F-CA029, should contact Master's Transportation Inc., at (800) 783-3613 or email [email protected], or visit their web site at http://masterstransportation.com
