BACKGROUND INFORMATION

 

Previous Commission action/date:  N/A

 

Background:  The Baldwin County Commission has historically utilized an older county-owned coach bus to provide special trips for county related and other functions.  The Commission approved an item at the October 1, 2019, Commission meeting to auction this county-owned bus.  The County will no longer have a county-owned bus to perform county-requested special trips.  Buses managed by the Baldwin Regional Area Transit System were purchased with federal funds and can only be used for special trips if the trip conforms with strict Charter Regulations.  This proposed annual bid for charter bus services will provide the Commission with an option for special trips that require a larger vehicle that can transport a large number of passengers.
