Mich. agency extends paratransit contract

Posted on December 23, 2013

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (AAATA) extended its contract for paratransit services with SelectRide for nine months, through April 30, 2015, reported The Ann Arbor Chronicle.

The contract extension comes in the context of the need to issue a request for proposals for the service, and the AAATA’s possible implementation of a five-year transit improvement plan. The AAATA is currently contemplating a substantial revision to the paratransit program and wants to take the time needed to develop a request for proposals, according to the report.
