Request for Proposal (RFP): Implementing and Assessing Alternate Transportation for Seniors (ATS) – Validation of the Transportation Toolkit for the Implementation of Alternate Transportation for Seniors in Alberta
Submission Due Date – December 7, 2016
The Medically At-Risk Driver (MARD) Centre is inviting proposals from interested rural Alberta community organizations, rural municipalities, counties, or municipal districts to work with MARD to implement a sustainable model of alternate transportation for seniors (ATS) and persons with disabilities (PWD) in a rural (population less than 15,000) area in Alberta. This pilot project will use the Transportation Toolkit for the Implementation of Alternate Transportation for Seniors in Alberta as a resource to guide in the development and implementation of an ATS service in a rural Alberta community. MARD will work with the successful Alberta applicant in the development and implementation of this ATS service. An overarching goal is for MARD to use the learnings from this project to validate the contents of the Toolkit.
