Metro vehicle - expressions of interest

As part of Brisbane Metro, Council will introduce an initial new fleet of 60 Metro vehicles, each with the capacity to carry 150 people that will share the busway with buses.

Council recently invited suitably qualified organisations to formally submit an expression of interest (EOI) for the design, delivery and commissioning of the Metro vehicle fleet. This process closed on Wednesday 26 September 2018.

Following this Council will identify a shortlist of tenderers from the respondents to progress to the next phase, expected to occur later in 2018.

Collaborative Partnership - expressions of interest

Council is establishing a Collaborative Partnership for Brisbane Metro, which will be responsible for the delivery of: 

  • the Inner City Infrastructure works package
  • the Suburban Infrastructure package
  • the Systems package.

Council recently commenced the procurement process for the Collaborative Partnership with a formal Expression of Interest (EOI) process. This closed on Wednesday 22 August 2018.

Following this Council will identify a shortlist of tenderers from the respondents to progress to the next phase, expected to occur later in 2018.

System design and delivery - registration of interest

As part of Brisbane Metro, Council is seeking to procure an innovative, world-class Platform Management Information System (PMIS) to manage the platform bay allocation of Metro vehicles and bus services.

Council is currently inviting suitably qualified organisations to register their interest in the design, development and delivery of the PMIS. To obtain a copy of the registration of interest document, email the Brisbane Metro team

Following this process, Council will undertake a formal expression of interest process for the PMIS. This is expected to occur in early 2019.

Early works

Prior to the commencement of main construction works, Council will be undertaking a number of early works packages, including service and utility relocations and intersection upgrades.

All early works packages will be advertised through Council’s Supplier Portal.

A depot facility for the Metro vehicle fleet will be located at School Road, Rochdale, adjacent to the South East busway.

Procurement of the Metro depot is expected to commence in 2019.
