Description

Specifications include, but are not limited to: The purpose of this Request for Proposal is to solicit sealed proposals to establish a contract or contracts through competitive negotiation to operate, maintain and manage the Fairfax Connector bus service (fixed route public transit), including all associated service programs and bus routes. All service activities shall be accomplished in compliance with all local, state, and federal regulations. The service types include, but may not be limited to: • Commuter / express service is fixed-route bus service provided solely during the peak (rush hour) periods on Monday through Friday and in the peak direction of travel. Passengers are predominately picked up from either a neighborhood or collection point (e.g., park-and-ride lot, transit hub). Closed-door service is provided for at least five miles along the bus route on a highway or major arterial. At least one Metrorail station or transit hub is served. • Local service is fixed-route bus service usually provided all day or during off-peak times on Monday through Sunday. Service is provided along local streets and roadways. Passenger activity occurs not only at the start and end points of the bus route, but also at bus stops along the route. • Feeder service is fixed-route bus service typically provided all day or during peak periods on Monday through Friday. Passengers are predominately picked up from a neighborhood and/or collection point (e.g., park-and-ride lot, transit hub). Service is provided to/from a Metrorail station, transit hub, or trunk line transit corridor. Reverse-commute service is included in this category. • Cross-county service is fixed-route bus service usually provided all day on Monday through Sunday. Service is provided along mostly local streets and roadways, where the bus route is at least 15 miles long and serves at least two activity centers (e.g., transit hubs, major generators). Passenger activity occurs not only at the start and end points of the bus route, but also at bus stops along the route. • Limited-stop service is a variant of cross-county service operating as a skip-stop service. The service trades some level of transit access for reduced travel times. • Circulator service is fixed-route bus service provided at higher frequencies (i.e., less than 15 minutes) all day. Service is designed to facilitate movement to and from a Metrorail station or transit hub. Therefore, at least one Metrorail station or transit hub is served. • The County will conduct feasibility and planning study for Flex Route service. Flex Route service may be implemented in the duration of this contract. • Special Routes: Fairfax Connector operates one special route.
