Hello, everyone! It's been a whirlwind journey, and today I'd like to share my personal experience that led to the creation of Transit-bids.com, a solution born out of a real-world problem.


In my line of work, I've come across the tough challenge of keeping track of transit agencies' potential bids. The process was strenuous, involving the navigation of several web portals. Some were managed directly by transit agencies themselves, while others would publish bids on various platforms. The inconsistency of their schedule was also frustrating, with some publishing daily, others bimonthly, or even just once or twice a year.


Interestingly, it wasn't just the frequency that varied, but also the nature of the bids themselves. Depending on whether the bid was for a Capital Project, administrative procurement, maintenance parts, or consulting services, the publishing method varied wildly. This gave each transit agency a unique "Bid Personality," which only added to the complexity of the task.


Each agency seemed to have its own standard for requested documents, diverging in type, quantity, and format. If you've ever tracked and read bids across multiple platforms, you'd likely agree with me: it was a time-consuming task with an uncertain outcome.


Now, you may ask, why go through all this trouble? The answer is simple - opportunity. Even though the search could yield nothing for weeks, there were also times when I would stumble upon something that could potentially be game-changing for my business. The predicament, however, was real: should I invest my time in searching, with the risk of finding nothing, or risk missing out on fantastic opportunities?


It was this conundrum that led me to dream of a tool - something simple yet effective. I envisioned a tool that could do the heavy lifting, tracking every corner of where transit agencies issue their bids. And not just the larger agencies, but the smaller ones too. This tool should help in quickly discerning the worth of pursuing a particular bid or not.
