Cost Change

Cost increase to add funding for community outreach, concept development, and preliminary design.

Justification

Ride On is experiencing significant fleet growth due to the introduction of Flex, Extra and Bus Rapid Transit (Flash) services. The Nicholson Court bus depot is in the last 5-year term of a multiyear lease, which expires in 2027. Extending the lease is not an option as the current site cannot accommodate projected fleet growth, nor can the facility accommodate the maintenance and refueling infrastructure necessary to meet the County's commitment to a zero emission bus fleet.

Fiscal Note

Federal funding for a portion of the cost may be available.

Disclosures

A pedestrian impact analysis will be performed during design or is in progress.
