The FSP is a publicly funded service that began operation in March 2006. The program is comprised of a fleet of tow and pickup trucks which patrol the highway during morning and afternoon commute hours. The purpose of the FSP program is to help reduce traffic congestion on Highway 101 by providing rapid removal of disabled vehicles, debris and vehicles involved in minor accidents from the freeway during designated service hours. The FSP Program is managed by a partnership of the SBC SAFE, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
Proposals are being solicited from firms interested in providing towing services to SBCAG SAFE for three years commencing on September 1, 2019 and terminating on August 30, 2022. Proposals are due Friday, June 28th and can be downloaded on the SBCAG RFP page here: www.sbcag.org/contracts--rfps.html
If awarded a contract to provide towing services, the Contractor shall have 45 days after the contract is executed in which to acquire the required equipment, have it inspected, hire and train drivers and be operable. Any company that cannot meet the 45-day operational requirement shall not be awarded the contract.
A Freeway Service Patrol RFP Pre-Proposal Conference will be held at SBCAG (260 N. San Antonio Rd., Ste. B) at 4pm on Tuesday, June 18th. Staff will make a short presentation and will be available to answer oral questions at that conference.
