-> RFP - 3-YEAR BICYCLE SAFETY EDUCATION PROJECT, GRAND RAPIDS, MI

Professional consulting firms are invited to submit a written proposal for the Development, Implementation, and Evaluation of a comprehensive Bicycle Safety Education Project over a three year period (2014-2016) in the greater Grand Rapids, MI area. The ultimate long-term goal for the Bicycle Safety Education Project is to reduce the total number of bicycle crashes, fatalities, and severity of injuries. The project's benefits will be multi-faceted. By broadening all citizens' knowledge about the rules of the road, it is desired that more cooperative and lawful behavior between cyclists and motorists will result. As more people ride confidently in traffic and feel safe, the numbers of bicyclists that commute on regular basis will increase and they will become more accepted as viable road users. The Bicycle Safety Education Project is meant to create a foundation for a long-term safety program that will continue beyond the 3-year duration of this project.

Deadline: May 7, 2014, 12 pm ET
