Resolution - Public Transit Services:
Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute an amendment to the interlocal agreement with Texas Tech University for campus bus service provided by Citibus.
The amendment to the interlocal agreement with Texas Tech University (TTU) for transit services is for a 1-year extension to the current agreement beginning September 1, 2021, and ending on August 31, 2022. The 2018 – 2020 interlocal agreement with TTU was originally approved by the City Council on July 26, 2018.
The 2021 – 2022 contract cost will be $61.00 per hour. It is estimated that Citibus will provide 64,902 hours of service during academic year 2021-2022 for an estimated total of $3,959,000. The contract includes a fuel cost adjustment above $2.30 per gallon. This is an 8.93% increase from the 2018 – 2020 contract. The minimum number of service hours for this contract is 63,000. The price per hour covers full cost recovery for the City of Lubbock. The City of Lubbock/Citibus has had a contract with Texas Tech University since 1968, with the fuel cost adjustment being added to the contract in 1981.
In accordance with the TTU agreement, Citibus does not collect fares from its passengers for this service.
The TTU Board of Regents will consider approval of the contract at their August meeting.
The approval of this amendment will result in no additional cost to the City of Lubbock. Citibus anticipates receiving $3,959,000; however, this amount could change, dependent on the services and number of hours provided.
