Resolution - Public Transit Services
: Consider a resolution ratifying the act of the City Manager in executing, on behalf of the City of Lubbock, a Regional Transit District Transportation Services Agreement and an Amendment thereto with SafeRide, Inc., for Medical Transportation Services by Citibus.
The agreement for Regional Transit District Transportation Services and the Amendment will provide a network of transportation providers who provide non-medical transportation services, non-emergency medical transportation services, and a technology platform to manage the ordering of transportation services by and between the City of Lubbock and SafeRide, Inc. The non-emergency medical transportation trips will be provided by Citibus.
This Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and continue for 12 months ("Initial Term"). Thereafter, the Agreement will automatically renew for additional 12-month periods ("Renewal Terms") unless either Party provides the other with written notice of its intent not to renew at least 45 days prior to the end of the then current term.
The rate structure for the contract is reflected in the chart below.

Effective June 1, 2021, the State moved the non-emergency medical transportation services to be brokered by the health plan companies providing Medicaid coverage. SafeRide has partnered with Superior Health Plans to manage the ordering of transportation services on their behalf. Under this agreement Citibus will be part of a network that provides non-emergency medical transportation in the city of Lubbock.
The amount of revenue generated from this agreement will be dependent on the number of non-emergency medical transportation trips provided by Citibus. The revenue from this contract will be available for a local match for Citibus grants, making this a valuable asset for budgets FY 2021 and beyond.
