Discussion

DISCUSSION

 

To leverage new innovations in transportation technology, Metro’s Office of Extraordinary Innovation (OEI) is leading the development of a new demand-responsive transportation service called MicroTransit. The goal of the pilot is to attract more customers to Metro, and improve services for existing customers, by testing a new user-friendly and intuitive service.

On October 25, 2017, the agency issued a Request for Proposal to the private sector to team with Metro to plan, design, implement and evaluate the brand new service. The pre-proposal conference was held on November 14, 2017 and the proposal due date is December 6, 2017. The MicroTransit Pilot (MTP) is an active procurement and as such Metro staff and leadership are bound by the agency’s policies pertaining to the blackout period.
