RFP Postponed, Student Transportation Agreements Extended Due to State of Emergency

Published January 19, 2021

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.

RFP Postponed

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.







Alert

Stop Change Requests & Late Applications

Due to the volume of applications our office is receiving at this time of year, Tri-Board will begin reviewing Stop Change Requests after September 20th. This is so we can focus on processing applications for students who would otherwise not have transportation.

Families that do not want to use their current bus stop until its review, or have applied for transportation at the beginning of September, should  consider alternative means of transportation/travel for the first day(s) of school. We are currently processing regular applications received on September 14th. Bus companies require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of new riders.

Elective Learning Program or Special Circumstance applications will take longer, as processing eligible students is our priority.
