Dan Reid, a non-emergency transportation services operator, has been named the 2017 Paratransit & Contracting Operator of the Year by the Taxicab, Limousine & Paratransit Association (TLPA).
Reid is co-owner and president of Grove Transit in Hattiesburg.
Reid, formerly a business consultant for mergers and acquisitions, bought out a failing transportation company seven years ago. Since then, he has turned Grove Transit into a community asset, including serving an on-demand market in the area. The company works to always have the latest technology to ensure the safety of passengers, and is a pillar of the community, working alongside many local nonprofits and community-based groups.
