Transportation Needs Study and Service Plan RFP

Alma Transit Center

Alma Transit Center is seeking a firm to complete a Transportation Needs Study and Service Plan.  This plan shall review existing transit demand in the ATC service area and identify how Transit can adapt to meet future needs (moving to a countywide transit system).  The plan will include a survey of Gratiot County residents to determine knowledge of the service, identify the pockets of citizens who have transportation needs, current and future use by county residents, purpose of destinations desired and trip generators.  The survey should also contain a method of measuring residents’ support for funding options (millage and fares).  Every resident of Gratiot County should have a reasonable opportunity to view and respond to the survey.  Out of the need to accommodate passengers to travel into Isabella County (City of Mount Pleasant), ATC provides 3 trips per day.  Based on this information along with an analysis of projected growth to a countywide transit system, the selected proposer will develop possible service options, including operational (staffing), equipment (service vehicles), and general capital requirements for the near future and for the next 3 to 5 years. Complete RFP here.
