Solicitation Number

Specifications include, but are not limited to: Qualified firms to provide information and feedback on statewide student transportation services. Rhode Island seeks to provide safe, streamlined, and cost efficient transportation services to school age children in Rhode Island. Rhode Island’s school districts continue to face challenges in meeting student’s transportation needs with no anticipated increase in state funding to meet increased demands on the existing system. Specifically, districts look to the state for statewide solutions to issues not easily handled on a district by district basis. A top priority for both school districts and the state has been the implementation of a single statewide transportation system for special education, non-public (i.e., private, parochial) and public students (i.e., includes charter, career / vocational technology students) who must go out of their school district for their educational needs. DCYF placement of foster care and homeless students represent an important subset of the existing student population who have increased demand for services yet are underserved by the current system. An all-inclusive, customized approach to transportation must address each population’s specific need.
