    • Transit Authority of the City of Omaha d/b/a Metro - RFI

      26-18 REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) FOR DIGITAL SIGNAGE AND SERVICES
      ISSUE DATE: 8-7-2018
      DUE DATE AND TIME: 8-21-2018

      Purpose of Solicitation
      The Transit Authority of the City of Omaha d/b/a Metro is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) to manufacturers and technical specialists in digital signage solutions and related services. This is an RFI only and does not constitute a commitment, implied or otherwise, that Metro will take procurement action in this matter. Further, Metro will not be responsible for any costs incurred in furnishing the requested information; all costs associated with responding to this RFI will be solely at the interested party’s expense. This RFI does not constitute a solicitation for bids or proposals, and Metro will not accept any RFI that includes solicitations for bids or proposals.

      Scope

      The purpose of this RFI is to obtain information on currently commercially available, non-customized or prototyped, available off-the-shelf technology that enable real-time digital display of bus arrival times, including technical integration of digital signs with control software and hardware, advertising integration with signs, full system design integration using a single interface control software for all digital signage, and future options for growth and enhancements. Additionally, Metro is requesting information on sign integration that would be compliant with Federal ADA visual/audio regulations, laws and ordinances. The information gathered may be used to prepare a forthcoming Request for Proposals (RFP) which may be issued at a later date.

      Background

      Metro is responsible for the administration and operation of transit service in the City of Omaha and surrounding communities. Metro offers fixed, express, paratransit, and circulator routes within the City of Omaha, and contracts for the operation of services within the cities of Bellevue, Papillion, LaVista, Ralston, and Council Bluffs. Metro currently operates twenty-six fixed bus routes with one hundred and eight buses servicing one hundred square miles or approximately 85% of the City of Omaha.
      Metro’s current digital LED system at each of our four Transit Centers are out-of-date and are at “end of life”. Information gathered from this RFI will assist Metro in implementing a completely new digital sign infrastructure system.

      Metro currently utilizes a Microsoft Active Directory domain, with Dell Blade servers using the latest Windows Server software. Presently, Metro connects to its remote sites via dedicated IP over internet services. Metro anticipates its future system to connect via IP and cellular router network.

      Metro is in the process of the installation of TripSpark Streets AVL system for all revenue fleet vehicles. This will include ten sixty-foot buses for our new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. Amenities anticipated for the BRT system may include connecting the infotainment system to the digital signage infrastructure. Digital signage software must support data collection for real-time bus arrival using GTFS feeds from the TripSpark Streets AVL system.

      The digital signage infrastructure will need to encompass real time bus arrival times, bus system information, emergency messaging, advertisements, local weather information, and select signs with interactive bus system information (wayfinding). All signs will need to include canned messaging for alerts and emergency messaging, as well as the ability to provide custom messages when needed. Sign integration must include text-to-speech capabilities that will interface with the existing TripSpark Streets AVL system.

      RFI Communication/Inquiries
      Upon release of this RFI, all communications should be directed in writing via E-mail to:
      Mr. Jeffrey Rumery
      Grant Administrator
