Auckland metro rail franchise opportunity Auckland metro rail franchise opportunity

Auckland Transport (AT) is seeking expressions of interest from the international rail market to operate Auckland’s metropolitan rail services from 2021.

Following our consultation with industry that was initiated in early 2019, we have now released an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the rail operator market. The purpose of the EOI is to identify operators who have the understanding, experience and capability to help AT deliver on the next phase of public transport growth in Auckland. The EOI will shortlist the best candidates who will be invited to respond to a Request for Proposal (RFP).

To participate in the EOI, interested parties should email to railfranchise@at.govt.nz.

The Expression of Interest submissions close on 6 March 2020. The Request for Proposal to shortlisted respondents will be issued in late May 2020.
