BURNETT FLOOR IS YOURS.

GOOD MORNING CHAIR, COOPER, BOARD MEMBERS, PRESIDENT AND CEO.

CLARK.

CAN YOU ALL HEAR ME? OKAY.

I'M RENEE MARTIN AWAKE.

I'M THE CFO OF CAPITAL METRO.

AND I'M HERE TODAY TO ASK FOR YOUR APPROVAL OF A RESOLUTION TO AUTHORIZE THE PRESIDENT AND CEO OR HIS BASIC KNEE TO EXTEND AN INTER LOCAL AGREEMENT WITH AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE FOR STUDENT AND EMPLOYEE FRIENDS PASSES.

AS YOU MAY REMEMBER, A CAPITAL METRO AND ACC ENTERED INTO AN INTERIM LOCAL AGREEMENT IN 2018 THAT ESTABLISHED

[00:20:01]

A FIXED FEE AS FAIR PAYMENT FOR ACC STUDENTS AND EMPLOYEES TO USE OUR TRANSIT SERVICES.

THE NEW AGREEMENT WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL AND FOR THE 12 MONTHS ENDED FISCAL YEAR 2019, ACC RIDERSHIP INCREASED BY 20%.

THIS IS THE ANNUAL EXTENSION OF THAT AGREEMENT AS WELL AS ACCOMMODATION FOR THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 AND THE, OF THE REDUCTION IN THE UTILIZATION OF THEIR SERVICES DUE TO THE PENDANT, MAKE THIS AGREEMENT STIPULATES THAT FOR THE MONTHS OF APRIL AND MAY OF 2020 CAPITAL, METRO WILL NOT INVOICE ACC CONSISTENT WITH CAPITOL METRO'S WAIVER AFFAIRS FOR ALL CUSTOMERS DURING THAT PERIOD, THEN DUE TO VERY LOW RIDERSHIP, IT ALSO ESTABLISHES A PAY PER RIDE ARRANGEMENT FOR THE MONTHS OF JUNE, 2020 THROUGH DECEMBER, 2020, AND THEN THE FIXED FEE OF 36,215 PER MONTH.

WE'LL RESUME FROM THE MONTHS OF JANUARY, 2021 THROUGH AUGUST, 2021 NOTE THAT THE FIXED FEE IS ESCALATED EVERY YEAR AS PER THE PRODUCER PRICE INDEX.

AND FOR THIS YEAR, THAT INCREASE WAS 1.3%.

A COPY OF THE INTRANET CALLED AGREEMENT IS ALSO IN YOUR PACKET AT, DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS FOR MS. MARWICK, NO QUESTIONS, UH, VERY WELL.

THE MOTION THEN IS THAT, WELL, LET ME ASK THAT WE READ THE MOTION THEN, UH, ASK THE FREEDOM, BUT HE WANTS TO MAKE IT.

UM, THE DRAFT MOTION IS RESOLVED THAT THE CAP METRO BOARD OF DIRECTORS, UM, I'M SORRY THAT THE PRESIDENT CEO OR HIS DESIGNEE IS AUTHORIZED TO EXECUTE AN EXTENSION OF AN IN OUR LOCAL AGREEMENT WITH AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE FOR STUDENT AND EMPLOYEE TRANSIT PASSES THAT ESTABLISHES A PAPER RIDE ARRANGEMENT FOR PARATRANSIT RAIL AND FIXED ROUTE BUS SERVICES FOR THE MONTHS OF JUNE, 2020 THROUGH DECEMBER, 2020.

AND THAT ESTABLISHES FOR THE MONTHS OF JANUARY 21 THROUGH AUGUST 21, A FLAT FEE FOR PARATRANSIT RAIL AND FIXED ROUTE BUS SERVICES OF $36,215 PER MONTH.

UM, SO ANYBODY WANT TO MAKE THAT MOTION, PLEASE REMEMBER KITCHEN SORT OF SECOND, SECOND.

UM, SECOND BY COMMISSIONER TREVELYAN DISCUSSION.

I JUST WANT TO SAY KUDOS TO OUR TEAM FOR CONTINUING THIS RELATIONSHIP.

I THINK IT IS ONE THAT HAS BEEN VERY BENEFICIAL FOR BOTH OF US.

AND THERE WAS A PERIOD OF TIME WHEN WE DID NOT HAVE THIS SORT OF A RELATIONSHIP WITH ACC.

AND I THINK WE'RE DOING A LOT OF GOOD FOR THE COMMUNITY.

AND I THINK HAVING A PARTNERSHIP WITH ACC IS VERY VALUABLE TO US AND IS ESPECIALLY HELPFUL TO THE YOUNG FOLKS, UH, UM, MAKING THEIR WAY THROUGH ACC.

SO THIS HAS BEEN, I THINK, AN IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTOR TO OUR RIDERSHIP AND, UM, PLAYS THAT WE CAN ACCOMMODATE THE CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES AND CONTINUE THIS AGREEMENT.

IF THERE ARE NO OTHER, UH, UH, COMMENTS OR DISCUSSIONS, WE'LL MOVE FORWARD WITH A VOTE COMMISSIONER.

TREVELYAN I REMEMBER STRATTON.

[VI 3 Approval of a contract with KPMG, LLP for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Consulting Services.]

UH, NEXT, UH, WE HAVE ACTION ITEM NUMBER THREE APPROVAL OF A CONTRACT WITH KPMG LLP FOR ENTERPRISE RESOURCE PLANNING CONSULTANT SERVICES.

IT'S A GOOD DAY FOR ACCOUNTS CAT MATURE.

GOOD AFTERNOON.

THIS IS CFO OF CAPITAL METRO.

AND I'M HERE TODAY TO ASK FOR YOUR APPROVAL OF THE RESOLUTION TO AUTHORIZE THE PRESIDENT AND CEO OR A STACY NEE TO FINALIZE AND EXECUTE A CONTRACT WITH KPMG LOP OR ENTERPRISE RESOURCE PLANNING OR ERP CONSULTING SERVICES FOR A BASE PERIOD OF ONE YEAR AND ONE 24 MONTH OPTION PERIOD IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED 2 MILLION

[00:25:01]

DOING HUNDRED AND $81,291 JUST TO GIVE YOU SOME BACKGROUND, CAPITAL METRO CURRENTLY USES MICROSOFT DYNAMICS, A X VERSION, 2012 AS OUR ERP SYSTEM, WHICH IS NO LONGER BEING ACTIVELY UPDATED BY THE VENDOR MAINSTREAM SUPPORT FOR THE SYSTEM BY THE VENDOR IS EXPECTED TO END BY OCTOBER, 2021 AND STEPS ARE BEING TAKEN TO SEEK OUT A THIRD PARTY SUPPORT UNTIL THE SYSTEM CAN BE REPLACED AS PART OF THE STATE OF GOOD REPAIR PROGRAM.

IT IS IMPERATIVE TO REPLACE THIS MISSION CRITICAL SYSTEM THAT IS AT THE END OF ITS USEFUL LIFE.

THE NEW SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO ELIMINATE SHORTCOMINGS THAT CURRENTLY EXIST AND ADD CRITICAL FEATURES THAT WILL IMPROVE EFFICIENCIES.

STAFF DOES NOT HAVE THE EXPERTISE TO ACQUIRE AND IMPLEMENT A SYSTEM OF THIS COMPLEXITY AND A CONSULTANT WILL BE NEEDED TO GUIDE US THROUGH THE SELECTION AND IMPLEMENTATION PROCESS.

NO SBE GOAL IS ASSIGNED TO THIS PROCUREMENT DUE TO THE LIMITED SUBCONTRACTING OPPORTUNITY WILL PROFESSIONAL SERVICES OF THIS TECHNICAL NATURE.

HOWEVER, OUR OFFICE OFF DIVERSITY WE'LL BE WORKING WITH KPMG ON THE COMMITMENT OF THEIR SUBCONTRACTOR NETTY SYSTEMS. CONSULTANT IS A CERTIFIED SPE IN TEXAS THAT IS IDENTIFIED AS THEIR SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT IN THE TRANSIT INDUSTRY.

THIS PROCUREMENT WAS DONE USING THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL METHOD AND THE EVALUATION TEAM DETERMINED THAT THE PROPOSAL FROM KPMG LLP WAS THE BASE VALUE FOR THE AUTHORITY PRICE AND OTHER FACTORS CONSIDERED THE CONTRACT IS A FIXED PRICE CONTRACT.

AND THE TERM OF THE CONTRACT IS ONE YEAR OR THAT BASE YEAR OF 1,000,040 $9,611 AND ONE 24 MONTH OPTION PERIOD OF 1,000,330 $1,000 FOR A TOTAL PRICE OF 2,381,291 DONORS.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS FOR ANNETTE, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER RENTERIA? CAN YOU LET ME KNOW HOW LONG OF A LIFE I'M ASSUMING IT'S A SOFTWARE PACKAGE? ISN'T THAT CORRECT? YES, IT IS A SOFTWARE SYSTEM AND, UM, YOUR LIFE COULD BE ALMOST INDEFINITE IF YOU PROCURE THE CORRECT SYSTEM THAT IS CONTINUALLY UPGRADED.

SO, UM, MANY OF THE TIER ONE SOLUTIONS THAT'S OUT THERE LIKE ORACLE AND SAP, IF YOU REGULARLY UPGRADE THE SYSTEM AND YOU STAY WITH THE LATEST VERSION, YOU CAN USE THAT SYSTEM MANY YEARS WITH DYNAMICS, A X, THIS VERSION THAT WAS, UM, PROCURED, UH, BACK IN, I BELIEVE 2013, BUT IT WAS IMPLEMENTED, UH, STARTED IN 2015 IS AN ON PREMISE SOLUTION.

AND MICROSOFT IS NO LONGER EXPANDING THAT SYSTEM THAT HAS MOVED TO A CLOUD SOLUTION.

BUT FOR US TO MIGRATE TO THE CLOUD VERSION WOULD BE THE SAME AS DOING A COMPLETE NEW INSTALLATION OF A NEW SYSTEM.

AND CONSIDERING THE LIMITATIONS THAT WE HAVE EXPERIENCED WITH MICROSOFT DYNAMICS, WE PREFER TO DO A PROCUREMENT AND TO EVALUATE ALL THE SYSTEMS THAT ARE AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET SO THAT WE CAN IMPLEMENT A SYSTEM THAT CAN LAST AS A REALLY LONG TIME BECAUSE THE ERP IMPLEMENTATION IS A VERY LENGTHY AND COSTLY PROCESS.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, MEMBER STRATTON, DID YOU HAVE A QUESTION? YES.

JUST SPIT BALLING IT ON AVERAGE.

DO YOU HAPPEN TO HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT AN ENTERPRISE RESOURCE PLANNING SYSTEM, UH, COSTS? UM, IT COULD BE ANYWHERE FROM, FOR OUR SIZE AGENCY, I'M ESTIMATING ANYWHERE FROM TWO TO 6 MILLION.

UH, WHAT THIS CONSULTANT WILL BE ABLE TO DO FOR US IS THEY WILL BE ABLE TO DO, TO HELP US DO AN ALTERNATIVE ANALYSIS AND A NEEDS ASSESSMENT, IDENTIFY THAT WE GET A BASED FIT SYSTEM THAT WILL WORK FOR CAPITAL METRO AS EXISTING SIZE, AS WELL AS POST-PROJECT CONNECTS.

AND WE MAY BE IN A MUCH BIGGER AGENCY.

AND DID, DID I UNDERSTAND FROM READING THE INFORMATION IN THE BOARD PACKET THAT AS PART OF THEIR, UM, THEIR OPTION PERIOD

[00:30:01]

FOR YEARS TWO AND THREE, WE COULD, UH, THAT, THAT GETS US UP TO THAT 2.38 $1 MILLION MARK, THAT WE CAN ALSO, UM, UTILIZE THE OPTION TO HAVE THEM HELP US TO IMPLEMENT WHATEVER THAT, THAT WE DECIDE TO BRING ON BOARD, WHATEVER THEY, WHATEVER THEY RECOMMEND WOULD BE, WOULD BE AN, UH, AN APPROPRIATE SOLUTION FOR US THAT THAT OBVIOUSLY WOULD BE A DIFFERENT CONTRACT.

THEY COULD BE, THEY COULD, WE COULD HAVE THEM STICK AROUND TO USE THEIR EXPERTISE, TO HELP US IN THEIR STAFFING AND TRAINING TO HELP US, UH, MAKE IT HAPPEN.

YES, THE OPTION PERIOD IN HERE TWO AND THREE IS TO HELP US THROUGH THE IMPLEMENTATION AND TO REPRESENT THE AGENCY TO ENSURE THAT THE, UM, THE FIRM WITH A COMPANY THAT WAS SELECTED TO IMPLEMENT THE SYSTEM, THAT THEY ARE FOLLOWING THE SPECIFICATIONS AND DELIVERING ON THEIR PROMISES.

OKAY.

AND IS THIS, IS THIS, THIS MONEY RIGHT NOW? WOULD THIS BE COMING OUT OF OUR, OUR BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 20 OR WOULD THIS ULTIMATELY BE COMING OUT OF 20 FISCAL YEAR 21 FUNDS? UH, THIS IS A PROCUREMENT.

THE DOLLARS ARE OVER THREE YEARS AND WE DID BUDGET FOR IT AND OUR FIVE YEAR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN.

OKAY, GREAT.

THANKS RYAN.

I APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

UM, I UNDERSTAND THE DIFFICULTY OF GOING FROM A CURRENT SYSTEM TO A CLOUD BASED SYSTEM AND WHAT I'M INTERESTED IN.

AND I KNOW SOMETIMES IT IS EASIER TO SHORE UP AN EXISTING SYSTEM RATHER TO EMBARK ON A, ANOTHER CLOUD BASED SYSTEM.

BUT WHAT I, WHAT I'D REALLY LIKE TO KNOW AS WE WORK THROUGH YEAR ONE IS, UH, LOOKING AT THE CLOUD BASED SYSTEMS, WHICH ARE MOST COMPATIBLE TO THIS SYSTEM, AND TO THINK ABOUT AND COST OUT WHAT A, WHAT A DATA MIGRATION WOULD ACTUALLY REQUIRE IN TERMS OF OPERATIONAL, UM, STEPS, BUT IN TERMS OF COST AS WELL.

SO THAT, UH, SO THAT WHEN WE, WHEN WE LOOK AT THE OPTION PERIOD, WE CAN DECIDE WHETHER IT IS GOOD TO CONTINUE TO INVEST IN OUR CURRENT SYSTEM ARE IDENTIFIED THE TYPE OF CLOUD BASED SYSTEM THAT WE MIGHT WANT TO MIGRATE TO.

SO TO BEGIN THE COMPARISON OF, UH, WHAT WE GET FOR STAYING WHERE WE ARE, IF THERE, IF THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT COSTS SAVINGS VERSUS, UH, WHAT, WHAT VERSUS THE FUNCTIONALITY OF A CLOUD BASED SYSTEM, WHICH MIGHT ENHANCE OUR ABILITY TO FIND, MANAGE, AND, AND, AND USE DATA.

SO JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE CONDUCTING THAT SIDE-BY-SIDE ANALYSIS IN YEAR ONE, SO THAT AS WE GET TO YOU TOO, WE CAN GIVE YOU MORE, UH, MORE DIRECT FEEDBACK ON, UH, THE DIRECTION THAT WE OUGHT TO TAKE.

YES, WE WILL EVALUATE ALL THOSE OPTIONS DURING THE EVALUATION PHASE.

I JUST NEED TO POINT OUT THAT THIS SYSTEM CANNOT BE UPGRADED.

UM, IT'S NO LONGER BEING UPDATED BY MICROSOFT AND MAINSTREAM SUPPORT FOR THIS IS ALSO EXPECTED TO END IN OCTOBER, 2021.

SO WE DON'T HAVE THE OPTION TO UPGRADE THE SYSTEM.

UH, WE HAVE THE OPTION TO MIGRATE TO THEIR CLOUD VERSION OF DYNAMICS, BUT, UH, WE'VE BEEN TOLD THAT THAT IS IN SCOPE ALMOST THE SAME AS IMPLEMENTING A COMPLETE NEW ERP SYSTEM, BUT THAT WOULD DEFINITELY BE ONE OF THE OPTIONS THAT WE WOULD BE EVALUATING IS TO GO FROM THE ON PREMISE SOLUTION TO THE CLOUD SOLUTION.

WHILE WE ALSO EXPLORE THE FUNCTIONALITY AND FEATURES OF OTHER SYSTEMS THAT'S AVAILABLE.

UM, SOME OF THE SHORTCOMINGS THAT WE'VE HAD WITH DYNAMICS IS THAT IT HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO PROCESS OUR, UM, GRANTS.

SO GRANT ADMINISTRATION IS STILL BEING DONE IN EXCEL.

WE WILL ALSO NOT ABLE TO USE IT'S A PROJECT ACCOUNTING MODULE FOR OUR CAPITAL PROJECTS.

SO WITH THE CURRENT ERP SYSTEM, A LOT OF WORK ARE CURRENTLY STILL BEING DONE IN EXCEL AROUND THE SYSTEM.

AND WHEN WE LOOK FOR A NEW ERP SYSTEM, WE'RE LOOKING FOR A SYSTEM THAT CAN, UM, THAT HAS A VERY ROBUST, UH, CAPITAL PROJECTS MODULE, AS WELL AS THE GRANTS MODULE.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ALSO GIVE PARTICULAR EMPHASIS TO DATA OWNERSHIP AND DATA SECURITY, UH, YOU KNOW, UH, IF IT IS A CLOUD SOLUTION, UH, YOU KNOW, UM, WHERE, WHERE WILL THE DATA BE HOUSED AND WHO OWNS IT? DOES THE, UH, DOES

[00:35:01]

CAP METRO ON IT ARE, DOES, UH, DOES THE COMPANY ON IT, AND IN TERMS OF ACCESSIBILITY AND THE NEED FOR, UH, MANAGING SECURITY AS WELL? YES.

UM, OUR IT AND LEGAL DEPARTMENTS, UM, ARE VERY MUCH ON TOP OF, UM, DATA OWNERSHIP AND SECURITY ISSUES WHEN WE DO IT TYPE PROCUREMENTS.

ALRIGHT, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

OTHER QUESTIONS FOR A NET? VERY WELL.

THE MOTION, THE DRAFT MOTION IS BE IT RESOLVED THAT THE PRESIDENT CEO OR HIS DESIGNEE IS AUTHORIZED TO FINALIZE AND EXECUTE A CONTRACT WITH KPMG, LLP FOR ENTERPRISE RESOURCE PLANNING, CONSULTING SERVICES FOR BASE PERIOD AT ONE YEAR AND ONE 24 MONTH OPTION PERIOD, AND THE AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED 2 MILLION, $381,291.

SO EMOTION, UH, QUESTIONS, UH, QUESTION AS TO CHAIR.

UH, WELL, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, I'LL MAKE THE MOTION AND, AND ASK SOME QUESTIONS IN THE QUESTION, PERIOD.

OKAY.

MOTION BY COMMISSIONER.

TREVELYAN A SECOND.

SECOND.

REMEMBER, RENTERIA BEAT YOU TO THE PUNCH AND MR. TREVELYAN.

OKAY.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE, UM, THAT, THAT, UH, WE WILL HAVE THE ASSESSMENT AND INPUT TO THE GENERAL DIRECTION OF OUR STAFF'S RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE DIRECTION OF THE CONTRACT.

UH, AS WE CONSIDER GOING INTO A, UH, AS WE CONSIDER GOING INTO AN OPTION, PERIOD.

I AGREE.

I AGREE WITH THAT.

I AGREE WITH WHAT BOARD MEMBER TOURBILLION IS SAYING, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE KEEP US POSTED ON THIS AND WHAT, AND WHAT THE CON THE, THE, WHAT KP, IF WE PASS THIS, WHAT KPMG, THE CONTRACTOR, WHAT THEIR RESULTS ARE, SO THAT WE CAN BE IN THE LOOP ON THIS AND MAKING THE DECISIONS ON WHAT DIRECTION WE'RE GOING IN AS PART OF THE PROJECT MANAGEMENT, UH, WORKFLOW AND DIRECTION ON THIS.

SO THAT WE'RE, WE'RE, WE'RE STILL IN THE LOOP ON THIS PROCESS, ESPECIALLY FOR SOMETHING MISMATCH, DISMISSIVE IS MAJOR, AND THAT IMPACTS THE ENTIRE SYSTEM GOING FORWARD.

AND FOR YEARS AND YEARS, WE CAN CERTAINLY DO THAT.

AND OF COURSE, UM, YOU KNOW, WE CAN UPDATE YOU ONCE WE'VE COMPLETED THE ALTERNATIVE ANALYSIS AND WHAT WE HAVE IDENTIFIED AS A BEST FIT, BUT WHEN THE ACTUAL ERP SYSTEM IS SELECTED, THAT WOULD ALSO BE A PROCUREMENT THAT WOULD BE COMING IN FRONT OF THE BOARD FOR APPROVAL.

I HEARD THAT IN COMMISSIONER CIVILIANS QUESTION, UH, UM, A QUESTION AS TO WHETHER WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR WE WOULD HAVE THE RECOMMENDATION AND WHETHER THE OPTION PERIODS WOULD BE DEALING WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS SO THAT WE HAVE THE RECOMMENDATIONS BEFORE THE TIME IN WHICH WE GO INTO A POTENTIAL OPTION, PERIOD.

YES, WE CAN DO THAT OTHER QUESTIONS, RIGHT.

IF THERE ARE NO OTHER QUESTIONS OR DISCUSSION NEEDED DISCUSSION, THEN LEW FORWARD WITH THE VOTE, UH, COMMISSIONER TREVELYAN.

I AM MEMBER STRATTON.

I COUNCIL MEMBER KITCHEN.

I VICE-CHAIR GARZA.

YES.

COUNCIL MEMBER RENTAL.

MARIA.

YES.

REMEMBER MITCHELL? YES.

UH, MAYOR HILL.

YES.

COOPERS AND I AS WELL.

THE MOTION CARRIES EIGHT TO ZERO.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, RENEE RENEE.

YOU'RE UP AS WELL FOR AGENDA ITEM NUMBER

[VI 4 Approval of a contract with Bytemark, Inc. to upgrade Capital Metro’s existing fare systems.]

FOUR APPROVAL OF A CONTRACT WITH BITE MARK, INC, TO UPGRADE OUR CAPITAL METRO EXISTING FARE SYSTEM.

GOOD AFTERNOON.

AGAIN, REDNECK NICK WEEK, CFO OF CAPITAL METRO.

UH, THIS PRESENTATION ON CUSTOMER PAYMENT SYSTEMS IS IN SUPPORT OF THE RESOLUTION TO FINALIZE AND EXECUTE A CONTRACT WITH BITE MARK INC.

UPRIGHT CAPITAL MAKER'S EXISTING FARE SYSTEM IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED 6 MILLION.

IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE THAT I'M PRESENTING TO YOU TODAY.

EXCITING NEW CUSTOMER PAYMENT SYSTEM UPGRADES THAT WILL ALLOW OUR CUSTOMERS ADDITIONAL FAST AND EASY WAYS TO PAY THEIR FARES.

THIS INCLUDES BEING ABLE TO TAP AND PAY WITH THEIR PHONES OR WITH METRO SMART

[00:40:01]

CARD OR WITH THEIR NFC BANK CREDIT CARDS.

THIS IS WHAT WE'LL ALSO EXPAND OUR CONTACTLESS PAYMENT METHODS DURING THE PANDEMIC, THROUGH THE USE OF OUR BUS ONBOARD VALIDATORS THAT ARE CURRENTLY BEING INSTALLED ON ALL OUR BUSES ON ALL OF OUR DOORS.

THIS WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO QUICKLY ROLL OUT EQUITABLE PAYMENTS SOLUTIONS LIKE FARE CAPPING WITH THE FIRST PILOT PLANT FOR THIS CALENDAR YEAR.

THIS IS JUST TO REMIND YOU OF THE VISION THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY PRESENTED TO YOU IN OCTOBER, 2018.

AND AGAIN, IN JULY, 2019, AS WE HAVE BEEN DEVELOPING OUR FARE STRATEGIES, VISION AND IMPLEMENTATION PLAN, THE ONLY ITEM THAT'S NEW IS ON THE TOP THAT WE'VE UPDATED THE VISION TO ADD HEALTHIER OPTIONS AS A KEY PART OF THE VISION BECAUSE OF THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 NEXT PAGE, WE ENGAGED FOUR NINES AS OUR FAIR STRATEGY CONSULTANT, WORKING WITH US TO DETERMINE OUR FAIR STRATEGY.

THEY SPENT SEVERAL SESSIONS WITH US ON SITE TO DISCUSS EXISTING THERAPY CAPABILITIES, AND ALSO MEET WITH STAKEHOLDERS TO IDENTIFY WHAT THE ISSUES WERE AS WELL AS WHAT FARE PROGRAMS WE WANT TO OFFER IN THE FUTURE AND WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE ASKING FOR THAT ALSO PROVIDED INFORMATION ON WHAT OTHER TRANSIT AGENCIES ARE DOING AND WHAT THE CAPABILITIES ARE OF NEW FARE PRODUCTS AND WHICH FARE SYSTEMS WOULD BE SCALABLE ENOUGH TO MEET THE DEMANDS OF PROJECT CONNECT.

REFOUND THAT TO BUILD A SYSTEM FROM THE GROUND UP WOULD BE COSTLY AND TIME CONSUMING, AND THAT THERE IS NO SINGLE VENDOR THAT HAS A COMPLETELY ROLLED OUT FULLY INTEGRATED ACCOUNT-BASED FARE SYSTEM FOR AN AGENCY OF OUR CURRENT SIZE.

THAT IS ALSO SCALABLE.

SOME OF THE BIGGER VENDORS OUT THERE HAVE DEVELOPED COMPONENTS OF THE SYSTEM, AND THEN ACT AS THE SYSTEM INTEGRATOR TO INTEGRATE WITH THE OTHER FARE SYSTEMS. BUILDING A SYSTEM FROM SCRATCH HAS SOME PROS AND CONS.

AND WE EXAMINE THESE EXTENSIVELY BEFORE DETERMINING THAT OUR BASED ALTERNATIVE WAS TO LEVERAGE THE INVESTMENTS.

WE'VE ALREADY MADE AN UPGRADE, THE BIKE MARK FAIR SYSTEM WE ALREADY HAVE IN PLACE.

THE FOUNDATION IS THERE AND BITE.

MARK MARK HAS BUILT THE PAYMENT ARCHITECTURE PLATFORM BASED ON THEIR SELECTION FOR THE COLUMBUS SMART CITY GRANT.

AND WE WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT.

AND THE INVESTMENTS WE HAVE ALREADY MADE TO UPGRADE THE EXISTING SYSTEM WILL COST SIGNIFICANTLY LESS AND CAN BE DONE MUCH QUICKER THAN BUYING A NEW SYSTEM.

NEXT PAGE, THIS DEPICTS OUR EXISTING FARE SYSTEMS THAT ARE ALREADY PROVIDED BY BIKE MARK OR INTEGRATED WITH BIKE MARK.

THESE SYSTEMS WILL BE INTEGRATED INTO THE BITE MARK ACCOUNTANT BACK IN SYSTEM AS TO PICKED IT BY THE PIECE IN THE METAL, THE ITEM CIRCLED IN YELLOW OR EXISTING PRODUCTS THAT WILL BE UPGRADED.

AND THE TWO ITEMS IN GREEN WILL BE NEW FEATURES THAT I WILL EXPLAIN IN MORE DETAIL IN MY SUBSEQUENT SLIDES.

NEXT PAGE, THE PAST YEAR WE'VE BEEN PROGRESSING ON OUR FARE STRATEGY AND INITIATIVES, A B AND C ARE ALREADY UNDERWAY INITIATIVE.

A IS THE MOBILE APP UPGRADES THAT WE LAUNCHED LAST SUMMER.

AND THIS SUMMER, WE ALSO HAVE THE TICKET VENDING MACHINES THAT ARE KIND OF CURRENTLY UNDER TASTING AND THE BUS ONBOARD VALIDATOR EXPANSION THAT WE'LL START THE INSTALLATION THIS SUMMER AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE WINTER ITEM.

NUMBER B IS WHAT WE ARE HERE FOR TODAY.

AND IN ITEM NUMBER C IS ALREADY CONTRACTED WITH BIKE MARK TO INTEGRATE THE MOBILE APP FOR B CYCLE AND PICK UP USE.

THEN THIS PROCUREMENT HAS FIVE PHASES AS DEPICTED ON THIS ROADMAP AS PHASE THROUGH FIVE.

AND I'LL DESCRIBE THEM MORE IN SUBSEQUENT SLIDES.

AND THEN ITEM NUMBER SIX IS THE REPLACEMENT OF OUR CASH FAREBOX AND VAULTING SYSTEM THAT ARE ALSO AT END OF LIFE FOR WHICH WE WILL DO A PROCUREMENT IN 2021 NEXT PAGE.

SO JUST TO EXPLAIN MORE ABOUT WHAT IS AN ACCOUNT BASED BACK IN SYSTEM BITE, MARK ALREADY HAS AN ACCOUNT

[00:45:01]

BASED SYSTEM, BUT SINCE THE CAPITAL METRO SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY TICKET BASED, THE TICKET IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE ACCOUNT AND THE TICKET IS DONE A DATED BY THE FARE SYSTEM TO CHECK IF THE FARE HAS BEEN PAID BY SWITCHING FROM TICKET VALIDATION TO ACCOUNT VALIDATION, BUT THIS ACCOUNT BASED BACK IN SYSTEM IN THE CLOUD.

SO IN THE FUTURE, YOUR PHONE OR YOUR SMART CARD WILL IDENTIFY YOUR ACCOUNT.

AND THROUGH THE ACCOUNT BASED BACK IN SYSTEM, IT WILL DETERMINE WHETHER YOU HAVE PREPAID OR WHETHER YOU NEED TO BE CHARGED.

NEXT PAGE.

THIS FIRST PHASE PHASE OF THE DEPLOYMENT IS VERY EXCITED, EXCITING, AND IT IS PROJECTED TO BE DEPLOYED THIS CALENDAR YEAR.

IT WILL ENABLE CASH TO BE LOADED ONTO THE MOBILE CAPITAL METRO APP WALLET.

AND THIS WILL ALLOW MORE CUSTOMERS TO USE THEIR PHONE FOR CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS AFFAIRS.

IT WILL ALSO ENABLE FARE CAPPING ON THE MOBILE PHONE WHEREBY CUSTOMERS CAN PAY FOR SINGLE RIDES.

AND THEN WHEN THE FAIR CAP LEVEL IS REACHED, THEY CAN RIDE FOR FREE FOR THE REST OF THE PERIOD.

THIS PROVIDES DISCOUNTS TO CUSTOMERS WHO ARE NOT ABLE TO BUY PERIOD PASS UPFRONT, BUT CAN EARN IT AS THEY RIDE.

YOU CAN LOOK AT THE EXAMPLE ON THE SCREEN, UM, HOW USERS WOULD BE ABLE TO TRACK THEIR PROGRESS TOWARDS EARNING A FREE PASS.

WE ARE ALSO EVALUATING A PILOT PROGRAM WITH THIS TO OFFER FARE CAPPING TO LOW INCOME CUSTOMERS.

AND WE'LL BE WORKING WITH THE COMMUNITY TO DEFINE HOW THAT PILOT WILL WORK MORE IN THIS TO COME LATER.

THIS YEAR, NEXT PAGE PHASE TWO IS, IS THE UPGRADE OF THE CUSTOMER WEB PORTAL SO THAT IT INTERFACED WITH THE ACCOUNT IN BACKEND SYSTEM AND WHERE CUSTOMERS CAN MANAGE THEIR ACCOUNTS.

NEXT PAGE PHASE THREE IS ESTIMATED TO TAKE 12 TO 15 MONTHS FROM NOTICE TO PROCEED AND WE'LL DELIVER MOST OF THE EXCITING NEW FEATURES, BUT HAVE A CAPITAL METRO BRANDED SMART CARD THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE AT EXTENSIVE RETAIL NETWORK.

THAT INCLUDES STORES LIKE SEVEN 11 FAMILY, DOLLAR DOLLAR, GENERAL, CVS, AND MANY MORE CUSTOMERS CAN USE CASH OR CREDIT CARD TO LOAD FUNDS ONTO THIS SMART CARD.

AND WITH THIS CARD, THEY CAN JUST TAP AGAINST THE BUS ONBOARD VALIDATOR AND DO CONTACTLESS PAYMENT OF THEIR FARE.

IF THEY WANT, THEY CAN REGISTER THEIR CARD ON THE CUSTOMER WEB PORTAL TO BENEFIT FROM VARIOUS FAIR PROGRAMS, OR IF THEY WANT TO STAY ANONYMOUS, THEY DON'T NEED TO REGISTER THEIR CARD AND THEY CAN STILL LOAD CASH ONTO THE CARD AND USE THAT TO RIDE.

THIS PHASE ALSO ENABLES THE FULL ACCOUNT BASED FARE CAPPING THAT WILL THEN BE AVAILABLE ON ALL OF OUR FARE SYSTEMS. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROCUREMENT IS FOR THE TECHNOLOGY THAT WOULD ENABLE FARE CAPPING.

A NEW FARE CAPPING PROGRAM WILL BE A FAIR POLICY CHANGED AND WILL REQUIRE EXTENSIVE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND MORE PARTICIPATION AND APPROVAL NEXT PAGE, AND NOT AN IMPRESSIVE FEATURE WILL BE GO BECOME AVAILABLE IN PHASE FOUR AND WILL TAKE THE LONGEST TO DEPLOY.

THIS WILL ENABLE ANY CUSTOMER THAT HAS AN NFC ENABLED BANK CREDIT CARD IN THEIR WALLET TO USE THAT CARD, TAP IT AGAINST THE BUS ONBOARD, VALIDATE AND PAY THEIR FAIR.

SO IF YOU LOOK AT, HAVE A LOOK AT YOUR CREDIT CARDS AND YOU'LL WANT IT, AND IF IT HAS THAT LITTLE SYMBOL ON YOUR CARD, THEN THAT CARD IS ALREADY NFC ENABLED.

NEXT PAGE, THE BASE HERE OF THE COST OF THE CONTRACT IS 2.4 MILLION.

AND THEN THERE ARE FOUR OPTION PERIODS OVER AN ADDITIONAL THREE YEARS, PLUS THE CONTINGENCY WITH A TOTAL NOT TO EXCEED OF $6,021,346.

SO IN SUMMARY, THIS SYSTEM UPGRADE WILL QUICKLY OFFER OUR CUSTOMERS THE LATEST AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGIES FOR PAYMENT SYSTEMS WHILE ALSO EXPANDING OUR CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS OPTIONS FOR THAT HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR CUSTOMERS AND BUS OPERATORS.

THIS WILL ALSO ENABLE US TO QUICKLY OFFER FAIR COPYING

[00:50:01]

TO OUR LOW INCOME CUSTOMERS AND OFFER MORE FAST AND EASY WAYS TO PAY.

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS FOR A NET? NONE.

YES.

REMEMBER STRATTON, UM, RENA, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I APPRECIATE WHAT YOU AND YOUR TEAM HAS DONE DOING THIS.

I KNOW WE'D BEEN LOOKING AT THIS FOR A LONG, THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING PROJECT AND APPRECIATE WHAT Y'ALL ARE DOING.

JUST, JUST WANT TO CLARIFY SOMETHING HERE.

UM, THE, THE SYSTEM INTEGRATOR APPROACH THAT Y'ALL WERE LOOKING AT, UM, I'M WANNA TO JUST KINDA TIE THIS BACK TO OUR PREVIOUS DISCUSSION IN SOME, ON, IN SOMEWHAT OF A WAY WITH THE ENTERPRISE RESOURCE PLANNING.

UM, IF WE WENT WITH THE NEW INTEGRATOR, UM, MY UNDERSTANDING FROM PREVIOUS DISCUSSIONS OFFLINE WITH YOU IS IT THAT WOULD BE LIKE, UM, TAKING LIKE KIND OF, WE IT'D BE LIKE STARTING OVER FROM SCRATCH AND BUILDING OUT SOMETHING COMPLETELY NEW.

AND IT WOULD COST A FACTOR OF, OF LIKE POTENTIALLY A FIVE, FIVE OR 10 TIME FACTOR OF WHAT WE'VE GOT RIGHT NOW WITH BITE MARK.

BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS BITE MARK RIGHT NOW.

WE STILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO CONTINUE THE UPGRADES TO CONSISTENT CONTINUE THE PLUGINS, TO CONTINUE TAKING THE SYSTEM ITSELF AND UPGRADING IT AND MAKING IT WORK FOR OUR NEEDS.

AS WE GROW AS A SYSTEM, IT'S GOING TO BE ABLE TO GROW WITH US, IS THAT FUNDAMENTALLY THE DIFFERENCE YOU'VE GOT A SYSTEM INTEGRATOR, YOU CAN GO OUT AND YOU CAN BUY SOMETHING OUT OF THE BOX, BUT IT'S REALLY KIND OF MORE FOR THESE KIND OF THESE BIGGER SYSTEMS. AND IT COSTS A HECK OF A LOT MORE AND YOU GOT TO BUILD IT FROM SCRATCH, BUT WITH WHAT WE'VE GOT NOW, WE STILL HAVE THE ABILITY AND FLEXIBILITY TO CONTINUE INCREMENT THE, THESE INCREMENTAL UPGRADES, DOING ALL THESE THINGS YOU JUST SAID AT A FRACTION OF THE COST.

THAT IS CORRECT.

AND, UM, AS REFLECTED WITH OUR CURRENT MOBILE APP THAT WE'VE HAD SINCE 2014, BUT HAVE CONTINUALLY UPGRADED TO, UM, BE INTEGRATED WITH MORE SYSTEMS AND TO STAY CURRENT THIS ACCOUNT BASED BACK IN SYSTEM, WE'LL HAVE AN OPEN ARCHITECTURE WITH OPEN API APIS THAT CAN EASILY BE INTEGRATED WITH ANY NEW, UM, TRANSPORT PARKING INITIATIVES THAT ARE AVAILABLE.

SO WE BELIEVE THAT THIS IS SCALABLE AND ADJUSTABLE, UM, PER OUR NEEDS.

SO FOR THE LONGTERM PERIOD OF THIS CONTRACT, 6 MILLION, IT'S GOING TO COST $6 MILLION.

YOU'RE TALKING.

WE CAN GET ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT THINGS WHEREBY IF WE WENT THE OTHER ROUTE, WE'D HAVE TO START BASICALLY FROM SCRATCH AND IT COULD COST US ANYWHERE FROM, YOU KNOW, WE'D BE LOOKING AT MAYBE WHAT DOUBLE, TRIPLE, QUADRUPLE LEAVE IN THE COST OF THAT TO GET ESSENTIALLY THE SAME THING, BUT WE'D HAVE TO START OVER.

YES.

SO, UM, IN THIS CONTRACT, THE BASE HERE IS 2.4 MILLION.

IF WE WERE TO GO WITH THE SYSTEM INTEGRATOR, UM, THE, THE FACTOR WOULD BE, YOU KNOW, MANY MULTIPLES OF THAT TO BUY A COMPLETE NEW SYSTEM.

THEN YOU WOULD ALSO HAVE TO REPLACE THINGS THAT LIKE YOU, THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE.

FOR EXAMPLE, THE INTEGRATION THAT WE ALREADY HAVE WORKING ON FOOT PICKUP AND FOR, UM, ON, FOR THE TBMS THAT INTEGRATION WITH THE ONBOARD VALIDATORS, ALL OF THOSE INTEGRATIONS WILL NEED TO BE REDONE TO THE NEW SYSTEM.

SOUNDS LIKE AN AMAZING RETURN ON INVESTMENT FOR US AND A GREAT FISCAL MANAGEMENT POLICY FOR, FOR US AS AN AGENCY GOING FORWARD THAT FOR ONLY 6 MILLION, WE GET ALL THAT COMPARED TO WHAT THE OTHER OPTIONS ARE.

I THINK IT'S WONDERFUL.

I APPRECIATE YOU BRINGING THESE TO US TODAY AS A BOARD TO MAKE THIS DECISION.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

I'M SORRY.

OTHER QUESTIONS FOR ANNETTE? NONE FOR WHETHER THE DRAFT MOTION IS BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CAP METRO TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY BOARD OF DIRECTORS AT THE PRESIDENT AND CEO, OR HIS DESIGNEE IS AUTHORIZED TO FINALIZE AND EXECUTE A CONTRACT WITH BITE MARK, INC, TO UPGRADE CAT METRO'S EXISTING FARE SYSTEMS WITH A 21% CONTINGENCY AND AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $6,021,346.

DO I HAVE A MOTION? SO MOVED MR. CHAIRMAN MOTION BY A MEMBER STRATTON A SECOND, SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER, RENTERIA IQ, ANY DISCUSSION NUMBERS QUESTION.

SORRY.

[00:55:01]

IF I MISSED THIS, UM, IT SAID THE PRESENTATION SAID TO MINIMIZE CASH.

SO IS THERE STILL, STILL AN OPTION TO TAKE CASH? UH, WE BELIEVE WITH OUR DEMOGRAPHIC, WE WILL ALWAYS OFFER CASH AS A METHOD OF PAYMENT.

UH, WE HAVE THE TICKET VENDING MACHINES AT THE RAIL PLATFORMS FOR CASH AND ON THE BUSES, WE HAVE THE FARE BOXES, UM, BUT THOSE FARE BOXES ARE AT END OF LIFE.

SO IN 2021, WE'LL BE DOING A PROCUREMENT TO REPLACE THE FARE BOXES.

WHAT WE WANT TO DO IS WE WANT TO MINIMIZE CASH AND OFFER OUR CASH CUSTOMERS AND METHOD OF GETTING CASH ONTO THE PHONE SO THAT THEY CAN ALSO BENEFIT FROM CONTACTLESS PAYMENT DURING THE SPEND MAKE.

YEAH.

OKAY.

I JUST WANTED TO, THERE ARE SOME UNBANKED PEOPLE, BUT, UM, JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THEY HAD OPTIONS.

SO THANK YOU.

THIS IS REALLY EXCITING.

I'VE BEEN IN CITIES WHERE YOU CAN JUST TAP YOUR CREDIT CARD AND IT'S JUST SO MUCH MORE CONVENIENT.

AND ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE IN A NEW CITY, TRYING TO NEW A SYSTEM, IT'S ONE LESS THING TO HAVE TO FIGURE OUT.

SO I'M EXCITED ABOUT THIS.

THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU.

OTHER DISCUSSION COMMENTS.

I WANT TO ADD MY THANKS.

I THINK WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT DOING FAIR CAP AND I NO, AS LONG AS CRESCENT CLARK HAS BEEN HERE AND THAT WILL HAVE A GREAT BENEFIT FOR A LOT OF FOLKS IN OUR SYSTEM.

AND IT'S NICE TO SEE US BUILDING OUT THE CAPABILITIES AND CONTINUING TO LEVERAGE THE ASSETS WE ALREADY HAVE.

SO PROUD OF WHAT YOU ALL ARE DOING HERE.

COMMISSIONER TREVELYAN YOU'RE MUTED, STILL WORKING ON IT.

I PUSHED IT ABOUT 12 TIMES.

I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT, THAT, UM, THAT, UM, BOARD MEMBER GAZA'S POINT, UH, WAS A REALLY GOOD POINT.

I THINK THAT FOR CONVENIENCE SAKE, AND I THINK THAT FOR THE DIRECTION TECHNOLOGY IS TAKING US WITH THIS IS AN EXCELLENT PROCESS.

I JUST WANT US TO MAKE SURE THAT WE REGULARLY INQUIRE ABOUT HOW WE CAN MAKE IT EASY FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE UNBANKED, BECAUSE THAT IS THE REALITY OF, FOR A NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITY.

AND I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DON'T LOSE SIGHT AND THAT WE'RE ALWAYS ASKING QUESTIONS AND FIGURING OUT HOW WE CAN MAKE IT EASIER FOR FOLKS WHO HAVE, UH, WHO HAVE DIFFICULTY WITH, UH, ELECTRONIC, UH, WITH, WITH ELECTRONIC BANKING PROCESSES.

SO WHILE I SUPPORT THE ITEM, I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE, THAT WE KEEP THAT PART OF OUR COMMUNITY IN OUR, IN OUR PROCESSES AND PROGRAMS AS WELL.

YEAH, IT'S SEVERE.

WE ARE VERY CONSCIOUS OF THAT.

AND, UM, AN ADDITIONAL FEATURE FOR UNBANKED WOULD BE THAT THEY CAN GO TO AN EXTENSIVE RETAIL NETWORK AND USE CASH TO LOAD ONTO A SMART CARD.

AND THEN WITH THAT CARD THEY CAN BENEFIT WITH THAT CAN BENEFIT FROM VARIOUS PEER PROGRAMS AND TAP AND PAY WITH THAT ART ON THE, ON THE BUS VALIDATORS IN ORDER TO HAVE CONTACTLESS PAYMENT.

OKAY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

IF I, IF I CAN JUST ADD ONE MORE AS WE ROLL OUT THE SYSTEM, UM, AND I'M SURE YOU ALL ARE THINKING ABOUT IT, BUT JUST IN CASE, MAKE SURE WE HAVE, UM, LIKE PDSS AND SPANISH LANGUAGE, UH, ON RADIO AND TV.

UM, I KNOW THE COMMUNITY THAT I REPRESENT THEY'RE UNBANKED BECAUSE THEY'RE SOMETIMES UNDOCUMENTED AND SO THEY ARE AFRAID OF GOVERNMENT, WHICH THEY HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BE.

UM, SO IF WE CAN JUST MAKE SURE WE'RE SPREADING THE MESSAGE IN, IN DIFFERENT LANGUAGES TO REACH THOSE PEOPLE THAT, UM, THIS MIGHT AFFECT, I GUESS THE APP CURRENTLY DOES HAVE A SPANISH ABILITY AND, UH, WE'LL BE COGNIZANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE COMMUNICATE WITH THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY AS WE, UH, FINALIZE THIS AND ROLL IT OUT.

RIGHT.

ARE THERE COMMENTS OR DISCUSSION? WELL, A CALL ROLE FOR A VOTE NOW? UH, COMMISSIONER TREVELYAN I REMEMBER STRATTON.

[01:00:01]

ON THIS FRONT PRESIDENT CLARK, SOMETHING YOU WANT TO ADD.

I JUST WANT TO, UH, EXTEND MY, THANKS TO THE STAFF AS WELL.

UH, IT'S FINANCE TEAM, THE IT TEAM OPERATIONS PROCUREMENT.

A LOT OF INDIVIDUALS AND DEPARTMENTS WERE INVOLVED IN THIS OVER THE LAST, QUITE FRANKLY, TWO YEARS.

UH, WE STILL HAVE OTHER COMPONENTS TO GO, BUT, UH, IT'S UH, THIS IS A PRETTY GOOD, UH, PROGRAM WHERE SOMEONE WOULD SEE THE OUTCOME, NOT REALIZE THAT THE IT'S LIKE AN ICEBERG, BUT 90% IS BEHIND THE SCENES TO GET TO THE PART OF ACTUALLY MOVING THE, LIKE AN APP OR SOMETHING ELSE FORWARD.

UH, AND I JUST REALLY WANT TO THANK THE STAFF.

THEY DID A, JUST A FANTASTIC JOB ON THIS.

SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

ALL

[VI 5 Approval of a partnership agreement with Broadmoor Austin Associates for transit improvements at the Broadmoor Development property.]

NEXT ITEM HAS BEEN PULLED AND THAT IS THE DISCUSSION OF THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT WITH BROADMORE.

UH, I THINK NEGOTIATIONS ARE NOT TO THE POINT WHERE THEY'RE READY TO PRESENT THAT.

UH, JUST FYI, UH, BECAUSE ONE OF MY COLLEAGUES GOT ENGAGED BY BROADMORE RELATIVE TO THIS PROJECT.

I HAVE RECUSED MYSELF FROM THE SIDE OF HIS SON.

WON'T BE AS STAFF HERE TO KEEP ME OUT OF ANY CONVERSATIONS AND LIKEWISE AT THE LAW FIRM.

SO WHEN THAT COMES UP, UH, I WON'T BE PARTICIPATING, UH, THE NEXT ITEM

[VI 6 Approval on an ILA with the City of Austin to co-invest and co-manage the Austin Bikeshare Program.]

ON OUR ACTION ITEM AGENDA AS NUMBER SIX APPROVAL OF AN ILA WITH THE CITY OF AUSTIN TO CO-INVEST AND CO-MANAGE THE AUSTIN BIKE SHARE PROGRAM.

UH, CHAD BALLANTINE AS OUR PRESENTATION.

WELCOME.

ALL RIGHT, GOOD AFTERNOON.

MEMBERS OF THE BOARD CHAIR COOPER, PRESIDENT CLARK.

UH, MY NAME'S CHAD BALLANTINE.

I'M THE VICE PRESIDENT OF DEMAND RESPONSE AND INNOVATIVE MOBILITY.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE A POWERPOINT HERE.

THERE WE GO.

AND, UM, YEAH, SO I'M HERE TO SEEK APPROVAL OF A RESOLUTION, UM, TO FINALIZE AND EXECUTE AND INTER LOCAL AGREEMENT WITH THE CITY OF AUSTIN, AGAIN, TO CO INVEST AND TO CO-MANAGE THE AUSTIN BIKE SHARE PROGRAM FOR A FOUR YEAR TERM WITH, UH, THREE, ONE YEAR OPTIONS AND THE AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED 2 MILLION, $250,000.

UH, NEXT SLIDE.

SO THIS IS A GREAT PARTNERSHIP EFFORT, UM, THAT REALLY TAKES ON THE EXISTING B CYCLE SYSTEM AND MAXIMIZES ITS POTENTIAL.

UM, IT'S A CONTINUATION OF OUR BIKE SHARE A CONVERSATION WE HAD IN MAY, IF YOU RECALL.

UM, UM, THIS IS REALLY THE FINAL STEPS.

UH, THE FINAL PUSH.

UM, WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT IT.

THE PARTNERSHIP WILL KICK OFF WITH A REBRANDING OF METRO BIKE IN THE FALL.

THE PARTNERSHIPS REALLY IMPORTANT FOR CAP METRO AND THE CITY OF AUSTIN, BECAUSE IT REALLY FITS WELL WITHIN THE GOALS OF THE AUSTIN AUSTIN STRATEGIC MOBILITY PLAN, AS WELL AS PROJECT CONNECT.

SO LET'S JUST TALK SOME, UH, GENERAL QUICK, UH, OVERVIEW OF IT.

UM, MOBILITY AS A SERVICE.

SO MOSS, M A S.

IT'S THE IDEA OF MOVING PEOPLE REGARDLESS OF THE MODE.

AND WE KNOW THAT THERE'S REALLY A STRONG LINK BETWEEN BIKES AND TRANSIT.

SO WE RUN INTO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT AND OFFER EXPANDED MOBILITY TO THE COMMUNITY.

AND THIS IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF MOBILITY AS A SERVICE.

UM, ALSO IT'S AN IMPORTANT ELEMENT, UM, TO, UH, TO EXPAND THE ELECTRIC ASSIST BIKES.

WE REALLY HAVE SEEN HOW THEY ARE VERY SUCCESSFUL AND WE WANTED TO EXPAND THE, UM, THE NUMBER OF BIKES THAT WE HAVE ON THE STREETS.

WE ALSO WANT TO KEEP THE EXISTING FOOTPRINT OF THE EXISTING, UM, OF THE EXISTING PROGRAM AND REALLY EXPAND IT TO A WIDER COMMUNITY.

WE DO REALIZE THAT THE EXISTING BIKE SHARE PROGRAM IS VERY WELL LOVED.

SO WE DON'T WANT TO TINKER WITH THAT.

WE JUST WANT TO EXPAND IT AND MAKE IT BETTER.

SO AGAIN, THIS IS A FOUR YEAR BASE IS WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT HERE.

AND, AND THE OVERALL IDEAS THAT THE CITY OF AUSTIN AND CAP METRO ARE COMING TOGETHER TO SHARE FINANCIAL AND PROGRAMMATIC SUPPORT FOR THIS NEW METRO BIKE PROGRAM.

NEXT SLIDE.

SO THE CAP METRO, WE DO A GREAT JOB OF OPERATING ALL OF OUR BUS RAIL AND DEMAND RESPONSE SERVICES, UH, THROUGH A CONTRACTED SERVICE PROVIDERS.

SO THIS PARTNERSHIP BUILDS UPON THAT STRENGTH THAT WE ALREADY HAVE, AND IT BRINGS CAP, UH, THE CITY OF AUSTIN INTO THE FOLD BY SHARING THE OVERSIGHT SUPPORT AND THE PLANNING FUNCTIONS, THE SERVICE PROVIDER IN THIS CASE WILL REMAIN THE EXISTING NONPROFIT BSA OR BIKE SHARE OF AUSTIN.

THEY'VE DONE A GREAT JOB OF MANAGING THE PROGRAM.

BIKESHARE BOSTON HAS SINCE DAY ONE OF THE PROGRAM, AND THEY ARE READY TO WORK WITH US ON EXPANDING THE PROGRAM INTO THE FUTURE.

THE INITIAL GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE BRINGS EVERYONE INTO THE FOLD.

THIS WILL LIKELY ADAPT OVER THE YEARS OF THE PARTNERSHIP, BUT WE REALLY THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT THAT EVERYONE WAS INVOLVED AT THE OVERSIGHT LEVEL RIGHT NOW, THE GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE PREPARES CAP METRO, AND THE CITY OF AUSTIN FOR INVESTING IN THE PROGRAM, EXPANDING ITS REACH, AND THEN DEMONSTRATING A CLEAR COMMITMENT TO MOBILITY OPTIONS FOR OUR COMMUNITY.

THE NEXT SLIDE, THERE YOU GO.

UM, SO METRO, LIKE I SAID, METRO BIKE IS SCHEDULED TO LAUNCH IN THE FALL.

UM, AND HERE'S WHAT YOU SHOULD

[01:05:01]

EXPECT THE REBRANDING OF THE BIKES AND THE STATIONS, UM, LIKELY IT KEEPS SOME, UH, MENTION OF THE B CYCLE PROGRAM.

SO METRO BIKE BY B CYCLE SO THAT WE DON'T LOSE OUR EXISTING CUSTOMERS.

SO LOOKING AT PERMANENT ACQUISITION OF AT LEAST THE 200 E-BIKES THAT WE HAVE ON LOAN RIGHT NOW, IF NOT ADDITIONAL BIKES, AS WE DO THIS, A MAJOR ROLLOUT, WE ALSO ARE INTEGRATING THE METRO BIKE, UM, SERVICE INTO OUR APP THROUGH A SHARED PLANNING.

SO, UM, YOU CAN PLAN A TRIP ON A BIKE AND A BUS IT'LL TRAN IT'LL PLAN IT FROM ORIGIN TO DESTINATION, INCLUDING BOTH MODES.

AND THEN ALSO WE'RE GOING TO BE BUNDLING BIKE AND TRANSIT PASSES IN OUR APP.

SO YOU'LL BE ABLE TO GO IN OUR CUSTOMERS.

WE HAVE TO GO IN AND BUY A ONE, ONE PASS FOR A BIKE AND TRANSIT.

THEY'LL MAKE ONE TRANSACTION AND THEY'LL BE ABLE TO HAVE ACCESS TO BOTH SERVICES.

SO THE FALL LUNCH WILL BE OUR FIRST ROUND OF MANY FOR THE, UH, METRO BIKES, SERVICE AREA EXPANSION.

AND WE'RE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT IT.

IT'S A REALLY BIG DEAL.

WE THINK.

UM, AND CITY OF AUSTIN AGREES.

WE ARE, WE'VE BEEN WORKING VERY CLOSELY WITH THE CITY OF AUSTIN AND DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION.

UM, AND IT'S REALLY, UM, IT'S MORE ABOUT, MORE THAN JUST REBRANDING THE EXISTING SYSTEM.

WE REALLY
