The Janesville Transit System (JTS) encourages the participation of small businesses and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) in bidding for contracts using federal funding. JTS maintains a bidders list, consisting of information about all DBE and non-DBE firms that bid or quote on eligible contracts. Small businesses and DBE businesses are encouraged to inform the Janesville Transit System of products and services which they have available. Businesses should contact Janesville Transit System directly (608)755-3150 and request to be added to the bidders list.
Small businesses are those that meet the definition according to the Small Business Administration (SBA) size standards as defined in 13 CFR part 121, which may be viewed. Businesses that consider themselves DBEs must show proof of certification when bidding on transit contracts. To become a certified DBE, contact the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Civil Rights and Compliance Section (608)266-6961 or visit the department website.
