Title
AUTHORIZE the Chief Executive Officer to award a five-year firm fixed unit rate Contract No. OP83932000-39383 for the lease and maintenance of tires of Metro-operated bus fleet and servicing of non-revenue vehicle tires to The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company for the period covering October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2022, in an amount not to exceed $40,908,927, subject to resolution of protest(s), if any.

Issue
ISSUE

Metro's fleet consists of approximately 2,241 buses of which 1,854 have six tires per bus and 387 articulated buses (Artics) with ten tires per bus, and all require proper maintenance and service on a regular basis. Metro must have a strong and effective tire maintenance program to ensure safe and reliable transportation services.

Discussion
DISCUSSION

This Contract will cover leased tires for the revenue fleet as well as tire maintenance services for both the revenue and non-revenue fleets. Non-revenue tires are purchased under a separate contract but are mounted and balanced under the bus tire leasing and maintenance service contract.

Lease costs are based on actual bus tire mileage utilization, plus a fixed monthly service rate and a per tire sales/use tax. Included in this service cost is the remediation of all spent tire casings and a comprehensive tire maintenance program. The tire maintenance program includes tire rotation, mounting, regrooving, recapping, balancing, airing, and wheel refurbishing. Furthermore, the monthly service rate also includes tire maintenance and service for Metro's non-revenue fleet.

This Contract is subject to the DBE Contracting Outreach and Mentoring Plan (COMP) and the Contractor commits to mentor one DBE firm for prot?g? development.
