C. MV Transportation, Inc. (MV) Payment Agreement

Recommendation: Staff recommends the Board confirm and approve Resolution 23-2020, establishing standing committees, memberships, and officers.

5. Executive Director’s Report

6. Atlantis Transit Facility – Schematic Design

Recommendation: Staff requests that the Board of Director approve Resolution 20-2020, authorizing the Executive Director to execute a Contract Task Order 4 between LAVTA and Kimley-Horn and Associates in the amount of $450,000 to assist with project management services for schematic design of the LAVTA Atlantis Transit Facility. Please note the Projects & Services Committee supported the resolution for the execution of CTO 4 in the amount of $350,000.

7. Modification 6 to Contract with MTM for Paratransit Operations

Recommendation: Taking into account the time required for a formal solicitation, staff recommends that the Board of Directors authorize the Executive Director to execute Modification #6 with MTM to extend the current payment agreement and exercise the last option term until December 31, 2020. Since the monthly supplemental agreement was based on trip volume, staff recommends that it be waived and revert back to the pre-COVID pricing structure of a per trip cost when the average weekday trip volume for any month is 100 or more trips. The new pricing structure will be as follows: 

 Tier Number of Trips per Month Price
per Trip
Change from Previous Rates
1 Up to 4,199 $36.94 $0.72 or 2%
2 4,200 – 6,699 $36.05 $0.70 or 2%
3 4,700+ $34.85 $0.68 or 2%
