HERNDON, Va. – January 15, 2015 – Total Transit has selected XO Communications (XO) to provide additional Hosted PBX and MPLS IP-VPN services as the company continues to grow its operations in Arizona. XO Hosted PBX combined with XO MPLS IP-VPN provides Total Transit with a fully converged voice and data solution. The Arizona-based mobility management company expanded the use of XO services because XO provides the flexibility, scalability and ease-of-use the company needs.
Known for having the largest hybrid cab fleet in North America, Total Transit celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2014. The company recently introduced Arizona’s first and only fully-insured legal RideShare service accessible only through the Total Transit mobile app.
