Bus Procurement Workshop

As the buses available to the transit industry have expanded to include high tech fleets, purchasing a vehicle has become more complicated and requires discussions with the manufacturers to get the bus that will best meet the agency’s needs. A well thought out, streamlined, procurement process not only benefits the agency, but allows manufacturers a more consistent approach for their proposals, and more accountability for how federal dollars are spent.
