Meeting Date: 04/26/2017  

Receive, consider and act upon release of a Request for Proposal for a Park and Ride Mobile Ticketing System (C-2017-0168);
The 2017 Budget allocates up to $182,000 for the system.

Total fiscal impact to be determined once proposals have been received. FTA Section 5339 funding will provide 80% reimbursement for capital costs (equipment, etc.) 

Ongoing maintenance would also be funded also be partially funded by Section 5339 funds, but at 50% reimbursement.
This Request For Proposals (RFP)  was originally approved by the Board last year and advertised in mid-2016. No responses were received for the original solicitation.  The lack of respondents is thought to have been due to other much larger transit agencies also procuring similar systems at the same time.

It is believed that now may be a better time for solicitations. Therefore, it is recommended to again seek to procure a mobile ticketing system.  The system would be used on The Woodlands Express that will allow for mobile fare collection and have additional capabilities including enabling passengers to visually understand when the next bus on their route will arrive with an estimated time of arrival.

Staff has been in contact with several vendors who have shown interest in responding to the RFP.

The draft RFP is attached has been prepared (Attachment A)

The results of the RFP will be presented to the Board of Directors for consideration in the future. 

Approve the release of the Request for Proposals for a Park and Ride Mobile Ticketing System.
