SUBJECT: Notification of Request for Proposals (RFP 5000346) for:
Escondido BUS RAPID Transit and Transit Priority Concept Study
The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) is soliciting proposals from qualified firms for the Escondido Bus Rapid Transit and Transit Priority Concept Study. Proposals are due by 4 p.m. on April 18, 2005.
The focus of the project is to develop, screen, and recommend the appropriate transit priority measures for North County Transit District (NCTD) Route 350, a route approximately six miles in length between the Escondido Transit Center in downtown Escondido and Westfield ShoppingtownÐNorth County shopping mall. The route carries approximately 2,100 riders each weekday and is one of the more heavily used NCTD routes. Weekday service runs every 15 minutes, and the route suffers from congestion in key locations during the morning and evening commute periods. Several major activity centers are served by this route, including the Westfield ShoppingtownÐNorth County shopping mall, San Pasqual High School and Bear Valley Middle School, the downtown area, and the transit center (which will be the terminus for SPRINTER light rail service beginning in 2007).
A copy of the RFP has been posted on SANDAGÕs website at www.sandag.org. If your firm is interested, please print the RFP for more information and detail. If you do not have World Wide Web access, a copy of the RFP can be mailed to you.
A pre-proposal meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 30, 2005, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the 7th floor SANDAG Board Room. Attendance at the pre-proposal meeting is not mandatory. A summary of the pre-proposal meeting questions and answers can also be mailed to you.
