Specifications include, but are not limited to:The selected team shall perform services as directed by Metra. Such work shall include the tasks detailed in Section VII of this RFP,to develop a creative fare structure which addresses our Boards fare principles and can effectively be adaptable to future business needs. This will include taking a comprehensive look at the fare structure and making recommendations in the areas of fare zones, fare types, fare pricing, fare policy, payment types, ticket accounting, revenue reporting, and ridership reporting.The review and recommendations must also consider reduced and free fares, peak vs off peak fares, ticket pricing discounts on multi-ride tickets, number of zones provided, interagency fare comparisons, fare media (paper, mobile, etc.), fare payments (cash, credit/debit, etc.), eliminating cash on train and the opportunity/cost associated with each. In order to effectively evaluate each proposed scenario a fare model will need to be developed. The model will be used to evaluate each proposed scenario, as well as scenarios in future years, and must be flexible and defensible, yet easy to administer and explain. Likewise, a template will need to be developed and incorporated to facilitate Title VI and Environmental Justice reviews.
