    Contracts can vary.. sometimes the govt agency owns the equipment and contracts out to a carrier to provide the drivers and service. Other contracts can stipulate for the carrier to also provide the equipment. Only in those cases the carrier owns the equipment. In the ChicagoDash example above, Valparaiso owns the buses that Free Enterprise operates with FE drivers. If CUSA Indiana (Tri State) somehow won or was awarded the next vontract, the buses would be simply transferred from FE to CUSA, but Valpo still owns the buses.
