Request for Proposals (RFP) Technical Assistance for All Facets of Electric Bus Fleet Implementation Including infrastructure, in-route charging, photovoltaic and energy storage VTA Project # 2017-05

Advertise Request for Proposals: (RFPs) 1/12/17 Deadline for questions by 10:00AM 1/27/17 RFPs due in VTA Office by 12:00 noon 2/3/17 Award and Notice to Proceed 2/10/17 The Martha’s Vineyard Transit Authority (VTA) is seeking to contract for Technical Assistance on the development of an electric bus fleet and associated support equipment on the Island of Martha’s Vineyard. The VTA is seeking the following services from a qualified firm: electrical engineering design, grant writing, technical specifications for procurement, project management and oversight, and support for public outreach in the areas of education and consensus building. The VTA’s objective is to deploy an electric bus fleet to serve the Island’s existing fixed route transit system with the long term goal of replacing the van/minibus fleet with electric vehicles as well. Deploying an electric bus fleet will better fulfill the VTA’s over-arching goal of improving air quality and minimizing noise pollution. The bus fleet will be supported by sub-systems that provide solar power collection, electrical grid connections and energy storage. The electric vehicle charging infrastructure will be used to charge the zero-emission VTA fleet vehicles at locations along the bus routes and the VTA’s Maintenance and Operations Center. The same charging facilities will also be available for charging municipal and private vehicles. Finally, there is a goal to create an electric vehicle friendly environment on the Vineyard, which will make it practical to transition the region’s taxi and rental car fleets to electric energy in the future. The RFP is available online at www.vineyardtransit.com or through this email address: lthomas@vineyardtransit.com. Proposals received after the due date and time will be rejected and will not be considered. Any contract resulting from this Request for Proposal is subject to a financial assistance contract between VTA, Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The performance of this contract is subject to the requirements of U.S. Government Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and applicable equal employment requirements. Minority Business Enterprises will be afforded full opportunity to submit proposals and will not be subject to discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, or national origin in consideration for an award. All proposers must certify that they are not ineligible contractors listed on the US Comptroller General's debarred bidders list. The VTA reserves the right to postpone, accept, or reject any and all proposals and to waive any informality in the RFP process as the VTA deems to be in its best interest. Angela E. Grant, Administrator
