ELOY TRANSIT FEASIBILITY STUDY RFP

UPDATE – On 05/25/2017, three questions were submitted to Sun Corridor MPO in regards to the Eloy Transit Study. A response was emailed back on 05/30/2017 to the current Sun Corridor MPO Consultant email distribution list. Please see the questions and responses below:

  1. Please clarify regarding the Final Coordination Plan work product listed on Page 8. Is this expected to be an official coordination plan as required by ADOT for the Eloy section of the MPO region? 

The Final Coordination Plan should be included in any proposed alternative for the City of Eloy. It is expected that the Final Coordination Plan will outline how the proposed alternative will impact and coordinate with any 5310 and 5311 transit providers currently operating in the City.

  1. What is expected of the Air Quality Analysis work product listed on Page 8?

The EPA has designated a large portion of Pinal County as a nonattainment area for PM 10 and PM 2.5. Any changes, or additions to, transit routes or park and rides in the County need to be modeled by MAG to ensure Air Quality standards are met.

  1. Please confirm the RFP requirement of “two informational and educational presentations” means separate presentations at two scheduled City Council work study sessions and two Sun Corridor MPO Executive Board meetings.

Two informational and educational presentations at two distinct scheduled City Council Work Study Sessions will be required of the selected Consultant. If budget allows, the Consultant will also be asked to give two presentations to the Sun Corridor MPO Executive Board. If the Consultant and Transit Project Managers agree that budget could be more effectively spent elsewhere, one or both of the Executive Board presentations can be handled by City or Sun Corridor MPO staff.

Sun Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization to hold Public Meeting on a
Transit Plan for Casa Grande

The Sun Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), in conjunction with the City of Casa Grande, is preparing a Transit Development Plan for Casa Grande. As Casa Grande continues to grow, additional transportation options are needed to help connect people with their desired destinations, such as jobs, educational institutions, medical services, shopping, recreation/leisure and other key locations.

The purpose of the Transit Development Plan is to evaluate existing and future community conditions, establish transit goals and objectives, and identify transit needs and services. Transit service alternatives and recommendations will then be developed for short and long term scenarios (i.e., five- and ten-year scenarios). Additionally, a financial plan outlining how to implement the proposed transit investments will be developed. The study is scheduled for completion in December 2017.

The public meeting will present the study goals and objectives as well as an overview of current and future conditions. The public is encouraged to attend to share their needs and desires for transit service. The public meeting will be held on:

Thursday, February 23, 2017

Dorothy Powell Senior Center

405 East 6th Street

Casa Grande, Arizona, 85122

5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
