Summary:  The Conservation and Experiential Programming Department and the Volunteer Resources unit provides transportation for school groups and community groups to come to the Forest Preserves for education, recreation and volunteer programs. In addition, programming needs often require shuttle bus transportation between program sites and parking areas. Four (4) bus companies are being awarded a contract because one (1) company cannot provide all of the services needed by the Preserves programming and volunteer teams, due to scheduling, program needs, type of bus, etc. The Forest Preserve put out an RFP for bus transportation services in November 2017 and received seven (7) proposals and these four (4) were chosen for their pricing and ability to provide required services.
