RFP for Transportation Demand Management

RFP for Transportation Demand Management

Houston Galveston Area Council

TDM Pilot Projects and Support Services

H-GAC is requesting proposals for the implementation of Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Pilot Programs, and Provision of Technical Assistance and Support Services and Training for the Commute Solutions Program. The pilot programs and services to be implemented through this project include:

Commuter Choice Leadership Initiative (CCLI) Pilot Program

Telework Pilot Program

Transportation Management Organization (TMO) Technical Support

Commuter and Transit Services Pilot Program Technical Support

These programs will be implemented in the Houston-Galveston Transportation Management Area (TMA). The Houston-Galveston TMA includes Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Montgomery, and Waller counties. These TDM programs and technical support services should be designed to provide viable, efficient and cost effective alternatives to commuting alone, thereby reducing traffic congestion along major travel corridors, and improving mobility and air quality while supporting and benefiting the region's economic development and business climate. This project should explore the effectiveness of these TDM programs and services as trip reduction strategies and quantify air quality benefits that can be achieved.

These programs and services will be primarily focused in large suburban employment centers, including the TMO service areas, communities that are served by commuter and transit pilot projects, and congested travel corridors. This project should be designed to offer commuter choice benefits as well as federal income tax credits for employers and employees. Only proposals that provide programs and direct services resulting in trip and emissions reduction will be considered. The selected proposal will be funded with federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funds.

A Pre-Proposal meeting will be held at H-GAC on the 2nd Floor, Room A on July 2, 2002 at 1:00 p.m. Proposals must be received by Monday, July 22, 2002 at 12 Noon. Mail proposals to P.O. Box 22777, Houston, Texas 77227-2777, or deliver to 3555 Timmons Lane, Suite 120, Houston, Texas. Late proposals will not be accepted. For more information, please contact Alan Clark, MPO Director at (713) 627-3200.
