2019 Procurement Award 

San Mateo County Transit District’s Contracts and Procurement Department is a proud first-time winner of the  “2019 Achievement of Excellence in Procurement” awarded by the National Procurement Institute.


SPECIAL NOTICE: Request for Information/Interest and Caltrain Planning Industry Day

The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (JPB), owner and operator of Caltrain rail commuter service, anticipates releasing a Request for Proposals (RFP) in late Fall 2019 for provision of on-call transportation planning and consultant support services. In preparation for the release of the RFP, the JPB will issue a Request for Information and Interest (RFI) on July 15, 2019 and hold a Caltrain Planning Industry outreach and networking event on August 14, 2019. The networking event is designed to solicit information from firms with experience in transportation, transit and railroad planning, economic development, financial planning, business and transportation analytics, land use, real estate, design and outreach that may be interested providing transportation planning and consultant support services to the JPB.

Individuals interested in the Caltrain Planning Industry Day and/or in the upcoming RFI and RFP or other solicitations that may be aligned with their core area of expertise, should register as a vendor at https://smctd.bonfirehub.com/login. Registered vendors will receive notification when the RFI and RFP are released.
