Are you getting ready to update or develop a state purchasing agreement for your 5311 and 5310 grantees? Small vehicles used in rural and tribal service are an important link in rural and tribal mobility. Unlike large transit vehicles, there are few standards and each manufacturer has its own special recipe for those 15-35 passenger vehicles. Bring your questions and join AASHTO’s Multi-State Transit Technical Assistance Program (MTAP) and National RTAP in a discussion with Carlton Allen, Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT’s) Transit Research Inspection Procurement Services (TRIPS) Program Manager about the state purchasing process. Robert E. Westbrook, Assistant State Transit Manager at FDOT, will moderate this webinar and provide a state’s perspective on the process. If you want safer and more reliable vehicles, you have to ask for them. This webinar will give you the information to help you use a state safety tested vehicle specification with safety and reliability built-in.
