ASSEMBLY AGENDA/MANAGER'S REPORT
THE CITY AND BOROUGH OF JUNEAU, ALASKA

Ordinance 2018-11(U) An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $600,000 as Funding for the Electronic Fare Boxes Capital Improvement Project for Capital Transit; Grant Funding Provided by Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.

MANAGER'S REPORT:

This ordinance would appropriate grant funding in the amount of $600,000 as provided by federal funds through the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.  A local match requirement of $150,000 has already been appropriated to the capital project under D71-090 – Electronic Fare Boxes.

 

This funding will provide Capital Transit with a data management and fare collection system that enables automatic passenger counters to track ridership and loads on an ongoing basis and a fare collection system to help reduce collection time, ultimately providing improved customer service. 

 

The Public Works and Facilities Committee reviewed this topic at its meeting on December 10, 2018, and referred it to the Assembly.

RECOMMENDATION:

The City Manager recommends this ordinance be adopted.
