Due to the recent Declaration of Emergency in Ontario and the related uncertainty in the market, Tri-Board has made the decision to postpone the closing date of RFP #2020-01 and extend current Agreements for Student Transportation Services for the 2021-2022 school year.
On December 15, 2020, Tri-Board Student Transportation Services Inc issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) #2020-01 for Student Transportation Services with a closing date of March 2021. The intention of this was to re-tender Tri-Board’s current Student Transportation Services Agreements, which are set to expire on August 31, 2021.
Due to the Declaration of Emergency in Ontario made on January 12, 2021, Tri-Board has made the decision to postpone the closing date of RFP #2020-01 into the latter part of 2021, in order to procure services starting in the 2022-2023 school year. Tri-Board will continue to monitor the developments surrounding the Emergency Declaration and its impact related to the revised closing date of the RFP. Updates will be provided to Proponents of the RFP by way of addenda through the Bids & Tenders website.
Agreement for Student Transportation Services Extended
To ensure that there is no disruption in service to students for the 2021-2022 school year, Tri-Board will be extending the existing Student Transportation Services Agreements for one (1) additional year, following the August 31, 2021 expiry date. The Agreements will now expire on August 31, 2022. This extension will come into effect once we have received the signed amendments from our Supplier Partners.
