About Zuni Transportation

Zuni Transportation Inc. is a dynamic company committed to providing quality, cost effective transportation to South Florida.

Incorporated in 1989 by co-founders: Exzun Hidalgo and Jorge Azor; Zuni Transportation has maintained a policy of conservative directed growth. This policy has led to Zuni being well positioned to take advantage of unique opportunities in South Florida’s transportation industry. In 1994 Zuni Transportation became one of five contractors selected to provide transportation under the Metro Dade County Special Transportation Services Contract (STS) with Comsis/Intelitran. On June 8, 1999 this contract was unanimously awarded once again to Comsis/Intelitran through August 2004. This contract has annual expenditures of $23 million a year with Zuni Transportation performing 25% of the daily trips performed under this contract. Zuni has consistently maintained the highest customer satisfaction ratio among the 5 providers. Zuni routinely averages a 99% customer satisfaction ratio.

In addition to the aforementioned contract, Zuni Transportation, in its commitment to managed conservative growth acquired Eastern Medical Courier Services. By successfully pooling resources common to both companies, Zuni is successfully providing quality cost effective courier service to the medical community encompassing the entire Baptist Health Systems of South Florida as well as The University of Miami, Mercy Hospital, Pan American and Mount Sinai to name but a few. In October 1997, Zuni Transportation became the primary transportation provider for the United States Southern Command, which relocated to Miami from Panama. By concentrating in the South Dade area Zuni Transportation is able to offer cost effective transportation to the medical community providing services for United Healthcare, the Office of Disability Determination for the Florida Department of Labor, area nursing homes and medical clinics.

By continuing to follow a structured plan of conservative growth Zuni Transportation is uniquely positioned to meet the ever-changing needs of the South Florida Transportation industry.
