Resolution - Public Transit Services:
Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute FY 2022 Section 5307 Grant, TxDOT URB 2202 (05), Project ID 51309020522, from the Texas Department of Transportation, for operating assistance to maintain its public transportation system.
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is allocating a Section 5307 Grant in the amount of $716,091 of public transportation funds to the City of Lubbock for operating assistance to maintain its public transportation system, Citibus, for FY 2022. The FY 2022 Section 5307 Grant is included in the Citibus Budget for FY 2022.
Citibus operates public transportation in both a fixed route and demand response service. The routes originate in downtown Lubbock and provide service at various locations throughout the City. All vehicles are accessible to persons with disabilities. The demand response service, CitiAccess, serves origins and destinations within the city limits. Both services operate under guidelines from federal, state, and local authorities for maintaining buses, facilities, preventative maintenance, and safety. The major trip generators include the medical center area, education facilities, employment providers, and shopping centers. Citibus provides service Monday through Saturday from 5:30 a.m. to 7:15 p.m., except holidays.
The contract is effective from September 1, 2021, or when fully executed by both parties, and shall terminate on August 31, 2022.
Acceptance of this grant of $716,091, will result in no additional cost to the City of Lubbock.
