Our Commitment to Our Community

En español

At GBT we are working hard to ensure that our services are reflective of the communities we serve. From our recruiting and the composition of our staff, to the planning and design of our routes and placement of amenities, and in creating opportunities for small and minority business enterprises — supporting our communities is what we do.

 

 

“Contributing to a better community through public transportation.”
—GBT Mission

Working with DBEs

Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) are for-profit small businesses where socially and economically disadvantaged individuals own at least a 51% interest and also control management and daily business operations — owners can be minorities, women, or people with disabilities. GBT sets triennial goals to procure services and goods through partnerships with DBEs.

 

GBT DBE Goals

 

By supporting supplier and contractor diversity, we are helping to support the economic base of the communities in which we live and work.
