IFB 2020-1491 BRT Rub Rail

IFB 2020-1491 BRT Rub Rail

AC Transit Number

AC Transit (the "District") is seeking bids from qualified firms for the purchase of 64 plastic railings for the District's station platforms.

To mimic “rail-like” service, the District has installed raised platforms to facilitate level boarding for the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service. However, as the body of the bus extends below the platform, there is potential for the bus to make contact with the platform, causing damage to the BRT buses. To minimize the likelihood of such incidents, staff are introducing “rub rails” which guide the bus along the platform curb; ensuring that the bus body does not contact the platform. Additionally, these rub rails provide for a consistent horizontal gap between the bus and the platform. This sacrificial plastic rub rail will provide ADA accessibility, driver safety, station protection and seamless boarding for BRT passengers.
