Project Description

The scope of this project will provide for the engineering, purchase, and inspection of fully accessible, air conditioned Clean Diesel buses; including a spare parts inventory. Engineering includes: development of specifications, pre-bid engineering meetings, onsite inspections of prospective bidders and/or their vendors’ plants, inspection of buses during production and acceptance of vehicles after delivery. 5 Year funds will continue funding stream for the Option(s) to replace up to 500 additional buses. Option(s) to the Base (100) contract order consist of up to an additional 500 buses that will initiate multiple orders to replace the 1000 Series New Flyer buses that have been in service since FY 2006.
