ISSUE

To drive the best value in pilot design, Metro is using a pre-development agreement contracting model that will allow the agency to maximize integration of privately developed technologies and approaches, promote shared risk and reward with private partners, and drive attainment of project performance goals. The pre-development agreement consists of two parts, Part A ("planning and design") and Part B ("implementation and evaluation").

The recommendation of multiple awards for Part A, the planning and design of a financially and technically feasible on-demand MicroTransit service ensures the agency will receive the most effective solution and increases the likelihood of success for what is a very new and untested technology.
