Effective pest control services are necessary to provide a clean, safe, and sanitary environment for Metro patrons and employees. The services performed under this contract will be monitored by the Metro Quality Assurance Department. To continue providing a clean, sanitary, and comfortable environment to our patrons and employees, a new contract for bus pest control services must be awarded in December 2022.
