1 GENERAL INFORMATION
1.1 Introduction
The Clark County Public Transportation Benefit Area (dba C-TRAN) is requesting information from
firms interested in providing an agency wide Wi-Fi system assessment.
This Request for Information (RFI) outlines a description of the services sought and the required
documents interested Respondents will be expected to submit. All requested information shall be
submitted in the format required by 5:00 p.m. (local time), Wednesday, June 12, 2024. Any
responses received after the deadline will not be considered.
This document is a RFI and is not a commitment on the part of C-TRAN to enter into any contract.
This RFI is intended to gain information from vendors, suppliers and/or contractors regarding the
project described in this document. Vendors may be contacted to discuss their responses.
Any information collected through this RFI process may or may not be used in the future to further
develop a formal solicitation. Providing a response to C-TRAN does not in any way give an advantage
to any vendor.
The issuance of this RFI does not obligate C-TRAN to enter into, nor will it result in a Contract for
any services or equipment. Issuance of this RFI does not commit C-TRAN, in any way, to pay any
costs incurred in the preparation and submission of a response. All costs related to the preparation
and submission of a response shall be paid by the respondent.
1.2 Agency Background
C-TRAN provides Transit Services throughout its specified service area boundaries in Clark County,
Washington, and to Portland, Oregon. C-TRAN’s service area population is approximately 445,744
persons in an area of 141 square miles.
C-TRAN was approved by the Clark County voters in November 1980 and became operational in
April 1981. C-TRAN provides Fixed Route Bus Service between the following cities and incorporated
areas: Vancouver, Camas, Washougal, Battle Ground, Ridgefield, La Center and Yacolt, Washington
and Portland, Oregon.
C-TRAN’s ridership has grown steadily as additional equipment and facilities have been placed into
service and public awareness of mass transit has increased. In 2021, as a result of Covid-19, C-TRAN
provided a reduced number of rides at 3,400,000. C-TRAN continues to see an increase in ridership
as the health restrictions related to the pandemic continue to lift.
C-TRAN is a municipal corporation of the State of Washington and is governed by a Board of elected
officials representing Clark County, City of Vancouver, East County and North County cities and
towns.

1.3 Reimbursement
C-TRAN will not reimburse Respondents for any costs involved in the preparation and submission
of responses to this RFI or in the preparation for and attendance at subsequent interviews.
Furthermore, this RFI does not obligate C-TRAN to accept or contract for any expressed or implied
services.
1.4 Submissions Become Public Records
Submissions are public information and subject to the Washington State Public Disclosure Act (RCW
42.17). Any proprietary information revealed in the submittal should therefore be clearly identified
as such. C-TRAN will notify any Respondent before releasing the proprietary information to any
request for public records. If the Respondent believes its records are exempt from disclosure, it is
the Respondent's sole responsibility to pursue a lawsuit under RCW 42.56.540 to enjoin disclosure.
It is the Respondent’s discretionary decision whether to file such a lawsuit. However, if the
Respondent does not timely obtain and serve an injunction, C-TRAN will disclose the records, in
accordance with applicable law.
1.5 Nondiscrimination
C-TRAN, in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 78 Stat. 252, 42 USC 2000d to
200d-4, and Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations, Department of Transportation, Subtitle A, Office
of the Secretary, Part 21, Nondiscrimination in Federally Assisted Programs of the Department of
Transportation issued pursuant to such Act, hereby notifies all Respondents that it will affirmatively
ensure that in regard to this RFI, minority business enterprises will be afforded full opportunity to
submit a response to this request and will not be discriminated against on the grounds of race, color,
sex or national origin in consideration for an award.
