RFP Number 2022-003
Battery-Electric Cutaway Bus

Via Mobility Services in Boulder, CO (Via), will accept proposals for the manufacture and delivery of up to sixty (60) new zero-emission, battery-electric powered cutaway buses from vendors with the requisite experience and service offerings in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Request for Proposal (RFP) and an agreement with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) for use of state and Volkswagen settlement funds for the purchase of the first vehicle (known as the pilot). Future Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funding is foreseen to be used to for additional purchases, for up to 59 additional vehicles over the course of five years. The contract shall be a five-year, firm-fixed price contract.

The quantity of 60 total vehicles over five years reflects the immediate and foreseeable needs of Via and was determined by using Via’s most recent federal and state funding awards and vehicle replacement schedule. That being said, there is no guarantee of federal or state funding past the first pilot vehicle purchase. Therefore, the minimum quantity commitment of this procurement is for one unit. If Via receives anticipated federal and state funding over the five-year purchasing term, the maximum quantity of vehicles to be purchased is not to exceed 60 vehicles.

In the event that Via is unable to purchase the maximum of 60 vehicles over the five-year purchasing term, unit quantities may be assigned to another public transit service provider (city, county, non-profit, or RTA) in Colorado. Assignment of unused quantities must be documented and approved by Via in advance, and the assignment must also be approved by CDOT.
