BreakShuttle Joins Wells + Associates' University Transportation Practice

(Tysons, VA – August 1, 2017) – Wells + Associates (W+A), a national transportation consulting firm with a mission to plan and modernize transportation networks, today announced that it has acquired BreakShuttle, the largest provider of charter trips for college students departing and returning directly to campus during academic breaks.

BreakShuttle was acquired from BRIDJ, a Boston-based private commuter shuttle service that ceased operations in April. As part of the acquisition, BRIDJ’s operations director Jon McBride has joined Wells + Associates to manage operations, strategy and business development at BreakShuttle.

BreakShuttle currently operates on a dozen university campuses in the Northeast, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Texas. Said Jon McBride, “There is a strong fit between BreakShuttle and W+A, whose employees are dedicated to ‘Meeting the needs of a mobile society.’ We expect demand for BreakShuttle’s transportation services will continue to grow, and have plans for expansion to more college campuses around the country.”

Added Terence J. Miller, CEO of Wells + Associates, “This acquisition is part of our overall strategy to expand our services and diversify our portfolio in the transportation field.
