January 12, 2019

Have you ever wondered how transit agencies procure their vehicles?  If not, you should know that it is not as simple as going to a dealer and buying them "off the lot".  Today's special guest covers the ins-and-outs of vehicle procurement, federal requirements, bus manufacturing, and the many aspects of what's needed when buying a bus or transit vehicle.  We get into the weeds a bit on this show, but if you aren't in the transit world, and even if you are, the complexity of the vehicle procurement process might surprise you.
