Request for Proposals (RFP): A Sketch Transportation Accessibility Modeling Tool for Transit Planning in Metro Boston

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (“MAPC”) is issuing a “Request for Proposals” (“RFP”) for a consultant to provide a sketch transportation modeling tool to evaluate changes in destination accessibility and travel patterns associated with various transportation and land use alternatives for a major redevelopment site in the Boston region’s inner core. The provided tool should be able to efficiently produce modeling results for multiple scenarios based on changing assumptions about the scale, location, mix, and form of future development; the routes, speed, and frequency of future transit services; and the nature of transportation demand management policies put into place.

The application of the tool will ultimately inform the planning of new transportation investments and land use policies by prioritizing options that should be subject to more detailed analysis and modeling. The sketch modeling tool is intended to complement the region’s existing travel demand model operated by the Central Transportation Planning Staff. While the first application will be for the West Station Area Transit Study, MAPC seeks a tool with transparent, state-of-practice methods that can be transferred to other study areas in the region as the need arises.

A notice regarding the “Sketch Transportation Accessibility Modeling Tool” RFP may be downloaded here. Please direct any questions about this RFP to Steve Gehrke at sgehrke@mapc.org. Submissions are due on March 15, 2019 at 5:00pm ET and should be submitted by email to Steve Gehrke at sgehrke@mapc.org

Request for Request for Information (RFI): Microtransit

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (“MAPC”) is issuing this “Request for Information” (“RFI”) to solicit submittals from interested parties on how MAPC may provide municipal and state government, as well as non-profits, with an objective evaluation of the various microtransit strategies that can best improve access to jobs, labor, healthcare, social services, and social activities. MAPC seeks to acquire an understanding of what software, consulting services, and transportation operators are available to help regional transit authorities (RTAs), municipal governments, and public-private transportation management associations (“TMAs”) improve their transit services with microtransit. Relevant microtransit products should help transit agencies and others improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their point-to-point transit and fixed route transit services.

This RFI is being conducted by MAPC in coordination with the Minuteman Advisory Group on Interlocal Coordination (“MAGIC”), an organization that consists of planning and select board representatives from 13 communities: Acton, Bedford, Bolton, Boxborough, Carlisle, Concord, Hudson, Lexington, Lincoln, Littleton, Maynard, Stow, and Sudbury. Several of the communities in the MAGIC subregion have been interested in learning about new and innovative ways to provide transportation services to the residents in their community, particularly in areas not served by current RTA or TMA routes, and during midday, nights, and weekends, when some or all transit services are unavailable.

The microtransit Request for Information (RFI) may be downloaded here. Questions about this RFI should be directed to Marjorie Weinberger at mweinberger@mapc.org. Submissions are due January 17, 2019 and should be submitted by email to Travis Pollack at tpollack@mapc.org.
