Media statement from SORTA Chair Jason Dunn
Today, we were notified that Cincinnati City Council did not reach a decision on the preferred streetcar operator method, turn-key or management contract.
Under the terms of the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority’s streetcar operating and maintenance contract with the City and consistent with Federal procurement requirements, the SORTA Board will award a contract as soon as possible, based on the streetcar budget provided by the City of Cincinnati and consistent with Federal Transit Administration guidelines.
I have not yet determined if the contract award will occur at the July 21 SORTA Board meeting or at a special meeting of the SORTA Board.
SORTA will make all procurement information available to the public as soon as the contract is awarded, consistent with Federal procurement requirements.
