Resolution - Public Transit Services:
Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute Purchase Order 27120456, for the purchase of seven Dodge Promaster paratransit vans from Creative Bus Sales, Inc., for Citibus.
Purchase Order No. 27120456 in the amount of $683,326, is for the purchase of 7 Dodge Promaster paratransit vans from Creative Bus Sales of Irving, Texas, per Contract SW0797C. The paratransit vans will replace older vehicles that have exceeded their useful life, and will reduce maintenance and parts costs.
The City of Lubbock/Citibus will use Federal Transit Administration FY 2017 & 2018 Section 5339(a) Bus and Bus Facility grant funds to purchase the paratransit vans. The local match for this purchase will be 102,499 Transportation Development Credits (TDCs) provided by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
There was no City of Lubbock procurement process for the paratransit vans, as the vans will be purchased through the Oklahoma Office of Management & Enterprise Services Statewide Contract, which is available through an Interlocal Agreement between the City of Lubbock and the State of Oklahoma.
Approval of this purchase order will result in no additional cost to the City of Lubbock.
The total cost of the 7 buses is $683,326, at $97,618 each, which is funded through Federal FY 2017 & 2018 Section 5339(a) Bus and Bus Facility grant funds. The local match for this purchase will be 102,499 TDCs provided by TxDOT.
