TARTA On-Board Video Surveillance System

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit responses from qualified firms to furnish and install hardware and software components to provide surveillance capabilities on the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority’s (TARTA) fleet of revenue vehicles. TARTA seeks a Proposer with the experience, expertise, and qualifications to provide an all-inclusive On-Board Video Surveillance System (OBVSS), fully supported by the proposer, or any combination of proposer, manufacturer, and integrator.

TARTA currently has a mix of MobileView (8+ years old) and Seon (3+ years old) surveillance camera systems installed on a limited number of revenue vehicles with many of the cameras non-functional. The new OBVSS will equip the full fleet of fixed route buses (currently 81) and paratransit vehicles (currently 33) and replace all the existing cameras/systems. Cradlepoint routers provide the core network on the Vehicles both wireless and wired. The existing CAD/AVL system on the fixed route fleet is being replaced with ETA Transit Systems. Trapeze PASS is in use on the paratransit vehicles.

TARTA has set a DBE goal of 11.6% for this procurement. TARTA reserves the right to solicit or to waive a new solicitation, for new bids if sufficient effort, as determined by TARTA, has not been made to comply with the DBE goals and requirements.

Come Sing with Perrysburg Chorale! Rehearsals Begin on August 29.

 We’re looking to welcome new singers for our 2022-23 season. If you love to sing and would like to make music with our wonderful community of singers we would love to hear from you. We rehearse Monday nights, September through May from 7-9 PM at Owens Community College Center for Fine and Performing Arts.

There is no audition necessary, but the director does need to hear you sing to know which section of the choir you belong in. This is a very simple, unstressful meeting with director Dennis Blubaugh during which you will be asked to sing one verse of a song of your choice (without accompaniment) and sing through a few vocal exercises so that the director can establish your vocal range.
