Objective of this Request for Proposal (RFP)
GVF has been retained by the Borough of Conshohocken to issue this RFP for a new Community Shuttle Service. The shuttle will run throughout the Borough serving Borough residents, employees, and visitors to provide better access to the Borough’s restaurants, businesses, and train stations to ultimately reduce single occupancy vehicle traffic. It is contemplated that the shuttle will also provide service for Borough residents, employees and visitors outside of the Borough in the immediately adjacent municipalities to and from selected locations.  The Borough reserves the right to change the shuttle schedule and pick-up/drop-off locations, as more specifically set forth in the RFP documents.

Contract dates: January 1, 2024 – December 31, 2024, with the options for two one-year renewal contracts.

 A tentative bid award date shall be announced on Conshohocken Borough’s website no later than 60 days of submission. Bidders can contact Maureen Farrell mfarrell@gvftma.com for specifications and information.

All bids must be submitted with a certified check or bid bond in the amount of ten percent (10%) of the bid, made payable to Conshohocken Borough. The successful bidder shall be bound to furnish and pay for a Performance Bond and a Labor and Material Payment Bond, or post a letter of credit, in an amount equal to one hundred (100%) of the contract price on bond forms acceptable to Conshohocken Borough.   Where the bidder intends to use a bond, its bid must be accompanied by a Surety's Consent. Said surety must be licensed to conduct business in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The successful bidder shall take affirmative action to ensure that applicants for employment and employees or agents are treated without discrimination based upon actual or perceived ethnicity, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, gender, gender identity of expression, marital and familial status, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability, use of guide or support animals or mechanical aids, and/or source of income.
