PURPOSE:
A resolution is needed to authorize award of Contract Number 2020-028 to Bar Construction, Inc. for the construction of the Greensboro Transit Agency (GTA) Ticketing, Call Center, and Waiting Area Renovation at the J. Douglas Galyon Depot for the Greensboro Transportation Department.

The J. Douglas Galyon Depot is insufficient for GTA's current ridership level. Since its initial renovation into a multi-modal transportation center in 2003, annual ridership has increased from approximately two million to over four million rides/year. The number of employees at the Depot has also risen, putting a strain on the customer service and operator's lounge areas of the Depot. A feasibility study was completed in June 2015 to analyze the GTA spaces within the Depot and determine a plan of reconfiguration to enhance efficiency and utility.

The Department of Transportation successfully received funding through the 2016 FTA Section 5339b Bus and Bus Facilities Discretionary Grant program to begin implementing the study. These funds will be used for renovation of the GTA Ticketing, Call Center, and Waiting areas of the J. Douglas Galyon Depot. Specific improvements include expansion and relocation of the operator's lounge, staff offices, and customer waiting area and restroom facilities. A new 'concierge style' ticket counter and call center and security station will be centrally located to enhance convenience and visibility. Clark Patterson Lee has completed architecture and engineering design work for this project.
