1. PURPOSE/BACKGROUND
A. INTRODUCTION
The Virginia Railway Express (VRE) is soliciting Quotes to establish a Blanket Purchase
Order with one (1) qualified and experienced Contractor to provide decal strip
advertisements for its rail car modesty panels.
B. VRE BACKGROUND
1. VRE is a commuter rail service linking the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia. The
Northern Virginia Transportation Commission (NVTC) and the Potomac and
Rappahannock Transportation Commission (PRTC) are transportation districts established
under Virginia law and jointly own this service. An Operations Board consisting of
members from each of the jurisdictions within the VRE service area governs the
development and operation of VRE and serves as an advisory board to the NVTC and
PRTC governing boards. Use of the term VRE in this IFB refers to NVTC and PRTC.
2. VRE began operations in 1992 and carries an average of approximately 19,000 weekday
trips on two (2) lines. In January 2014, VRE’s Operations Board adopted System Plan
2040 which calls for expansion of service, requiring the addition of railcars, expansion of
station and maintenance and storage facilities, as well as expanding operations to meet
the goal of doubling ridership by 2040. VRE’s multi-prong program addresses short term
growth needs, as well as longer term capacity improvements and investments in
maintaining and servicing VRE’s equipment and facilities.
3. The primary mission of VRE is to provide commuter-oriented passenger rail service
between outlying suburbs and the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria urban core. Some
tourists and “day-trippers” also ride the trains. The service is heavily oriented towards
that core area in the morning peak and in the opposite direction in the evening peak.
C. PROJECT BACKGROUND
VRE seeks to update the decal strip advertisements on its rail car modesty panels. The
scope of this project includes removing the existing decal strip advertisements, as needed,
and replacing them with new decal strip advertisements.
