. Scope The awarded consultant will provide guidance and professional assistance for the development of a Pre-Teen and Teen Independent Transit and Mobility Plan. The Plan is to be utilized by the Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) its constituent transit service providers and member agencies. Please note, the project will be staffed by the Santa Fe MPO Transportation Planner, as project manager. In forming guidance and recommendations, the contractor should consider the following elements: Public transit, multi-use trails and formal and informal paths enable a certain level of independent travel though out the community. (For this effort independent mobility is defined as a pre-teen or teenager traveling through the community without direct assistance from an adult/parent and without an automobile.) As pre-teens age they typically increase the diversity of after-school trips as extramural activities including sports, music, arts and employment opportunities increase. Generally in the United States, as teens attain drivers licenses their independent mobility option simply shifts to the single passenger automobile as well as their reliance on its use. However, recent trends indicated that youth primarily in urban centers are less attracted to automobile dependency for a variety of reasons. By analyzing current attitudes, perceptions and behaviors of youth in the Santa Fe Metropolitan Area in 2016 the Santa Fe MPO may achieve the following: Development of policies and programs that maximizes travel independence via transit and active transportation as youth move into adulthood. Provide parents and schools with resources and tools that encourage youth to safely travel within the community as using transit and active transportation as alternatives to the automobile. Increase employment access and opportunities for teens. Development of infrastructure gap analysis that supports current and latent demand for youth travel movements throughout the community. Develop partnerships with SFP Schools, City Youth and Family Services, Santa Fe Community Services, Santa Fe Prevention Alliance, Youth Works, and the Student Wellness Action Team to list a few. Encourage and increase transit ridership from all socio-demographic areas of youth and help to shift perceptions of walking, biking and transit from an un-cool negative stereotype to one of independence, freedom and safety. Develop metrics regarding ridership and origin/destination for local service providers. Determine after-school and weekend trips that pre-teens and teenagers make Desired determinants include the following; however guidance from the selected consulting team may provide insight as to modifications of these listed: Degree of independence of cohort regarding travel or the number of mobility options available, used, frequency of use and desired destinations; Perceived and real safety measures associated with modes of travel; Map formal, informal paths and types of independent mobility movements (walk, skateboard, bicycle, scooter/moped, bus, other); Determine approximate age of when young people gain independence in their daily travels; and Demographic Mapping and Data Collection: # of youth age 10-17 in the Santa Fe Metropolitan Area and public/private school and residential locations.
