Metro Tasmania Pty Ltd (Metro) is a state-owned company whose core business is the operation of bus services in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie. Metro is the largest passenger transport company in Tasmania.

Metro requires a ticketing system (the System) to be provided to it by an appropriately qualified company, business or individual.

Metro will be utilising a two stage procurement process prior to awarding a contract to a supplier for the supply of the System:

  1. Expressions of Interest

This process constitutes the first stage of the procurement process, after which Metro will formulate a shortlist of potential suppliers.

  1. Detailed tenders

Shortlisted potential suppliers will then be invited to participate in the second stage of the procurement process, which will involve detailed tenders being provided in response to Metro’s Request for Tender.

The successful tenderer will then be required to enter into an agreement with Metro for the provision of the System on terms acceptable to Metro.

Metro now invites Expressions of Interest for the provision of the System.

Metro encourages innovative or novel contracting and/or partnership arrangements that would enable the System to be developed, implemented and/or managed in a more cost-effective manner to be put forward.
