City of West Bend Contracts Taxi Service with GO Riteway Transportation Group

West Bend, Wis. (February 1, 2021): The City of West Bend is pleased to announce it has entered into a five-year shared ride taxi operation contract and vehicle lease agreement with GO Riteway Transportation Group. In July 2020, the City published a request for proposals (RFP) that adheres to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the Federal Transit Administration’s bidding requirements. An internal evaluation committee reviewed and scored each proposal, and GO Riteway Transportation Group provided the most cost-effective and thorough services.

“We are delighted to have GO Riteway take on this important service that our residents depend upon for transportation throughout the city,” said Mayor Christophe E. Jenkins.

GO Riteway is a premier ground transportation company that began in 1957 as Riteway Bus Service, Inc. Over the next 60 years, it continued to expand and provide the best, most dependable and safest transportation for business travelers, tourists, students and local residents.

“We are very excited for our new partnership with the City of West Bend,” said Ronald R. Bast, GO Riteway Chairman. “As a local, family-owned and operated company that originated and is based in Germantown, WI, we look forward to opening our new facility in West Bend. GO Riteway currently operates in over 25 locations and with this opportunity, we have decided to open a new transportation terminal in the city and expect to hire approximately 50 employees from the area.”

The agreement with GO Riteway started on January 1, 2021. Contracted services will run through 2025.
