While privately-owned buses and vans operate charter and airport services, transit agencies operate their own vehicles rather than handing over services to third-party agencies and use vehicles other than what is provided by the large agencies. These private operators provide extensive services for companies, tourists, and commuters, and many of these companies offer incentives for its riders, including free rides, discounted admissions, and frequent service.
