MAYFLOWER CONTRACT SERVICES WINS PUBLIC TRANSIT CONTRACTS

 OVERLAND PARK, Kan., March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Mayflower Contract Services Inc., the transit services subsidiary of Mayflower Group Inc. (NASDAQ: MAYFLGRP), has started service in recent days on a series of four contracts in New Jersey, California and Arizona that represent $8.4 million in revenue during the next five years.
 "Public transit authorities and riders are responding positively to the reliable, cost-effective transportation options that we provide," said Jerry Cook, executive vice president for corporate development at Mayflower. "We expect continued growth in 1993 in the public transit sector of our business."
 The single largest contract is an agreement with New Jersey Transit, the statewide transit authority, to provide paratransit services for the handicapped to bring the state into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Initially, Mayflower is providing service seven days a week, 18 hours a day, to people in Mercer County, including Trenton and Princeton, N.J. The three-year contract is valued at $3 million.
 Mayflower will operate four propane-fueled buses on special "neighborhood circulator routes" in southeast Los Angeles under a new contract with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation. The three-year contract for the Dash-Southeast service is valued at $1.5 million.
 Riverside Transit Agency, the transit authority for Riverside County, Calif., has awarded Mayflower a contract to provide expanded fixed route and "dial-a-ride" bus services with 28 vehicles. Mayflower began serving the western Riverside County communities of Calimesa, San Jacinto, Moreno Valley, Perris, Sun City and Hemet on Feb. 1. The initial two-year contract is valued at $1.9 million with extension options for up to three additional years.
 The City of Phoenix Transit Department has expanded its relationship with Mayflower, contracting with the firm to provide fixed route bus service with eight vehicles to growing neighborhoods in the northern part of the city. Mayflower now operates and manages 30 of 300 city buses in Phoenix. The three-year agreement is valued at $400,000 annually with extension options for two additional years.
 Mayflower employs 9,500 people nationwide and maintains a fleet of more than 7,500 vehicles in 26 states serving half a million passengers each day. Mayflower Contract Services Inc. is headquartered in Overland Park and is a subsidiary of Mayflower Group Inc., which trades publicly on NASDAQ (symbol: MAYFLGRP).
