MOBILITY ON DEMAND PILOT
Request for Proposals FY19-R-011
DART is seeking to enter into multiple partnerships with qualified transportation providers in Polk County to support and supplement DART’s fixed-route transit services. DART will partner with all responsive transportation providers who meet the qualifications listed in this request for proposals. DART’s goal is to partner with multiple transportation providers to meet the various needs of its customers, provide options, and better understand customer preferences and costs. The partnerships will make up a pilot program that will run for approximately 12 months, but could be in effect for more or less time. DART will consistently review and evaluate the performance of the pilot project to determine if changes to the length or design of the pilot are warranted. If the pilot project is successful, DART may extend the same service concept to other areas of the service territory.
