Mario and Tammy Cunningham started Legacy Transit Lines in Texas. When they saw opportunities
in northwest Arkansas for their business, they moved to Arkansas and incorporated
their business in the state in September 2016.
They are a family-owned, full-service moving company based in Fayetteville and qualify
as a Woman Owned Small Business. Services provided by Legacy Transit include residential,
corporate relocation, military, senior, and long distance moving.
During a late-night online researching session, Mario Cunningham discovered the services
offered by Arkansas APEX Accelerator. They became a client in 2017.
Legacy Transit Lines received its first government contract in December 2020. It is
a four-year, $1.5 million contract with Fort Sill, a United States Army post in Oklahoma.
The scope of work consists of packing and crating for military personnel between Oklahoma
Cunningham mentioned the government contract coming at the perfect time as he and
Tammy were uncertain as to what the future looked like for their business during the
pandemic. They had previously serviced many large corporate accounts and senior living
centers, all of which were forced to put their own services on hold.
Arkansas APEX Accelerator congratulates the Cunninghams and their company on securing

looking for ways to improve and expand their business. We are happy to have been of
assistance in securing a government contract for one of our clients during uncertain
“Max has assisted us in many ways including the Woman Owned Small Business certification
process, sharing bid opportunities, assistance with Data Universal Numbering System
(DUNS), Commercial and Government Entity Code (CAGE), Small Business Administration
Dynamic Small Business Search (SBA DSBS) capabilities, North American Industry Classification
System (NAICS), and System for Award Management (SAM) registration. We want to thank
Max for his help thus far. He has been extremely helpful, and we could not have gotten
this far and won this government contract without his help,” said Mario Cunningham.
