Background – I have a client who wants to use the FTA funds to replace a bus purchased by another transit agency (transit agency A) because they have grown and they quickly needed the new capacity. The bus was on its useful life, if purchased (not with FTA funds) for a nominal amount. However, it is not certain that transit agency A, to which the bus was originally purchased, had already replaced the bus with federal funds. Should we be concerned if this bus has already been replaced by transit agency A, which uses federal funds to make a request from transit agency B, to use federal funds to replace this bus? one. We contacted the American Public Transit Association (APTA) for information on the purchase of transit buses by its member agencies. As of 1 January 1999, some 7,000 HGVs had been ordered by US transit authorities. This number would include all buses 30 years of age or older. At that time, the agencies also plan to purchase about 13,000 additional heavy buses that were not yet under contract. THE APTA contact for more information is Jerry Trotter at 202-496-4887. You should contact the American Public Transit Association (APTA) at 202-496-4800 or online atwww.apta.com/.
As you may be aware, the ESTV has published a “Best Practices Procurement Manual (BPPM)” for fellows and the issue of negotiated purchases is addressed in Section 4.3 “Evaluation of Competition Proposals.” one. We advise you to contact Jerry Trotter, Manager Bus Programs, APTA, at (202) 496-4800. They can inform you of APTA`s recommendations for software and other high-tech devices. one. We do not have national inventory data for bus parts, but you can contact APTA (www.apta.com/) as they may have done studies in this area for their members. (Published: May 2010) General information: My analysis of the STURAA test reports from the Altoona Bus Research and Test Centre database (2002 to today) showed me that 60% of the 40-foot to two axle transit buses do not match the Bridge Formula B at full capacity. A. FTA has no requirements regarding the availability of school bus parts.
You should check with the agency that makes your federal funds available to determine if they have legal or regulatory regulations. The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) has finalized the technical and procurement specifications for standard acquisition specifications available on its website. The bus runs on diesel. A separate addition for a CNG bus has been completed, but I`m not sure it`s available to the public. However, these two specifications apply to a single fuel transit bus. THE APTA`s interlocutor is Jerry Trotter, (202) 496-4887. One transit agency that we know is used for bus purchases is the New York City Transit. You can call Mr. Ira Tillman at (718) 694-4218 to discuss the agency`s experience with rFP`s regarding bus purchases. Another source of information would be Sir.
