Kennett Area Micro-Transit Study RFP

Kennett Area Micro-Transit Study RFP


The Kennett Region (Kennett Township and Kennett Square Borough, working together) are seeking the assistance of a consultant - or team – for the preparation of a Kennett Region Micro-Transit Study. “Micro-transit” is defined as a collection of flexible transportation options occupying the niche between private individual transportation (cars, taxicabs, or ride-hailing services) and public mass transit (bus). Micro-transit allows agencies to offer riders an on-demand option that is more flexible than designated fixed routes and appointment-like paratransit services.


The Kennett Region, which has an expanding population and a growing culture of micro-transit use, is uniquely positioned to better utilize and expand upon its network of transit offerings. Specifically, the goals and objectives of the Kennett Region Micro-Transit Study are to:


1. Analyze the current landscape of existing micro-transit demand and service provision in the region;

2. Project and analyze future micro-transit demand in the region;

3. Explore possible micro-transit approaches and strategies to address current and future mobility

demands;

4. Engage the greater Kennett community through a thoughtful conversation about the current and

future mobility needs of residents, visitors, employers, and employees with a focus on equity;

5. Improve capacity, understanding, and coordination between current and future micro-transit

providers, stakeholders, and relevant decision-makers.


Proposals are to be submitted by 5 PM on Friday, February 26th, 2021 (see RFP for detailed contact information).
