I filed a FOIA request with Connect Transit for some payments they made. This is the only one I’ve received so far.
Connect Transit has been paying LifeCil $6,874.42 a month. Payment was authorized at the September 22, 2015 meeting: september-22-2015-regular-session-proceedings
The discussion starts on PDF page 11.
LifeCil was the only bidder when an RFP (Request For Proposal) was issued for a contractor to determine who is and who isn’t qualified for FREE rides under the Americans With Disability Act (ADA).
The total contract approved is for a maximum of $257,837 spread over 3 years. $257,837 divided by 36 months is $7,162.14 a month, I don’t know why the payment is different.
Another FOIA request has been filed for the number of people who have qualified under ADA. (FOIA received – see this post: https://blnnews.com/2016/11/10/more-connect-transit-and-ada/)
The contract has a cancellation clause, I don’t know if it has been cancelled since Connect is still planning a shut down January 1st.
