Providing affordable non-emergency transportation services
Dan and Suzanne Reid formed Grove Transit in 2010 to meet the growing need for quality non-emergency transportation in the Hattiesburg area. We studied the demographic information and saw that South Mississippi, and in particular Hattiesburg, presented a unique opportunity with its rapidly growing Senior Citizen population, as well as the presence of world-class medical facilities. All of our research and analysis confirmed our belief that the Mississippi Pine Belt Area was ideally situated for us. After looking at possible acquisition targets in the area Dan and Suzanne came to the conclusion that their best bet was to put Dan’s over thirty years of experience assisting young companies and management teams to work by forming a new company built on the core principles of Safety, Reliability and Courtesy.
Since opening our doors in late 2010, we have grown from a small company with 20 vehicles in service, completing 75 trips per day to one of the largest private non-emergency transportation companies in Mississippi regularly completing over 500 trips a day. From the outset we brought on a management team experienced in providing non-emergency transportation services in Mississippi. Currently we employ over 85 individuals and maintain a fleet of over 75 vehicles. We have expanded from renting a small two room office in Hattiesburg to purchasing and renovating our new corporate offices on Hardy Street, directly across from the zoo. In addition we now have locations in Picayune, McComb, Laurel, Magee and Waynesboro, with plans to add locations in Yazoo City, Louisiana and Arkansas.
