Request for Proposals for Transit Management Services


The Southeastern Regional Transit Authority (SRTA) is responsible for public transit services in ten (10) communities within the Southeastern Massachusetts region, and is funded with Federal, State, and local subsidies, as well as fare box revenue. The SRTA was created pursuant to Commonwealth of Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 161B, and thus is considered a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The resultant contract is subject to financial assistance contracts between the SRTA and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT). As such, all Contractors must comply with all applicable Equal Employment Opportunity laws and regulations.

The subsequent agreement is subject to any applicable guidelines for project administration issued by the Federal Transit Administration of the Department of Transportation of the U.S. Government and all other applicable laws, rules, and regulations. The SRTA reserves the right to reject any or all proposals, or any part of any proposal, that the SRTA deems it in its best interest to do so.
