The Central Midlands Council of Governments (CMCOG) in coordination and cooperation with its member governments and the Central Midlands Regional Transit Authority (a.k.a The COMET) will perform a Short Range Transit Plan (SRTP), origin, destination and demographic survey and a Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA) of The COMET’s transit system. Responders to this RFP shall develop a Short Range Transit Plan (SRTP), origin, destination and demographic survey and a Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA) of The COMET’s transit system in order to improve the efficiency of transit service provided within The COMET service area of Richland and Lexington Counties, address future anticipated land use development and transportation investments, and enhance connectivity to other bus services. The COA will develop ridership information, market analysis, visioning, service and network design, service design guidelines, performance measures and alternatives. This information will then be used to prepare a ten year SRTP. The SRTP and COA will specifically address how The COMET’s transit system will operate within The COMET service area evaluating limited expansion outside The COMET service area to destinations that benefit The COMET passengers. Overall, the analysis will culminate in recommendations for transit service revisions that would address future population growth and transit demand, transit-dependent needs, connectivity to regional transit service, and anticipated financial revenue and transit investment opportunities, thus creating a world class urban transit system for The COMET.
