Democratic National Convention organizers on Wednesday will announce the transportation management team for the event.
The team will coordinate a shuttle bus system of approximately 250 motor coach vehicles to move delegates and others between more than 150 hotels and convention venues during the September event in Charlotte. The shuttle system will move an expected 6,000 delegates, plus thousands of other officials and guests.
Bid requirements included creating maps and submitting routes for approval. Convention organizers have said they expect bidders to partner to get the work. For instance, an event management transportation company might design the system, then work with local bus companies that would provide the vehicles and drivers.
