City of Atlanta to Re-Issue Request for Proposals for
Shared Ride Services at
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
ATLANTA – Adam Smith, Chief Procurement Officer for the City of Atlanta, today announced his decision to cancel the shared ride shuttle services Request for Proposals (RFP) at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Smith said, “I have concluded that it is in the best interest of the city to cancel the shared ride shuttle services RFP. The re-issued RFP will be consistent with the Airport’s upcoming enhanced ground transportation processes, address the needs of the now-operational International Terminal, and maintain the Airport’s best-in-class services. The city will also increase the number of evaluators who will review the proposals to ensure a more in-depth review and selection process.”
The city issued a RFP for the shuttle service contract in October 2011. In the interim, the Airport asked a group of permitted shuttle providers to recommend a process for providing shared ride services. That process, which provides services to travelers through the currently permitted vendors, will remain in effect until a new contract is executed.
