Technical support for the development of an RFP for countywide contracted services known as VISTA. These services connect the activity centers within Ventura County CA and also link Los Angeles County to the east and Santa Barbara County to the north. The Santa Barbara connection is funded in part by the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments. The evaluation of the RFP process included financing options for vehicles as well as contract operator selection.
As part of the study, vehicle suppliers and potential operators were contacted to receive input prior to the finalization of the RFP. The study included the analysis of peer operations and processes that could be applicable to Ventura County.
