Both the V-Line and ChicaGO DASH are public transportation services started by the City of Valparaiso. The City through a competitive bid process contracts out the daily operating tasks to subcontractors. Ride Right, LLC has been the contractor responsible for operating the V-Line since 2010 and the DASH since 2014. Ride Right provides the drivers, maintenance, dispatchers, and other day-to-day management tasks associated with the transit services; while the City provides oversight, reporting, and funding for the buses with help from the Northwestern Indiana Regional Plan Commission, Valparaiso Redevelopment Commission, Federal Transit Administration, Indiana Department of Transportation, and the Northwest Indiana Redevelopment Authority.
As a public transportation service, it is our goal to meet the needs of the greater Valparaiso community through low rates, efficient transportation, and community improvement.
