The purpose of this Notice of Pre-registration is to invite organisations with relevant rail operational skills and experience to pre-register for access to Auckland Transport’s data room for the Expression of Interest (EOI) documentation for the Auckland Rail Franchise Procurement.
The EOI is expected to be available in the data room at 10am on 31 January 2020 (New Zealand time), therefore we recommend that any interested organisations complete their pre-registration prior to this date.

The current rail operating contract for Auckland metro services has been in place since 2004. AT is now wishing to undertake a competitive procurement process for an expanded and modernised rail operating contract with effect from 2021.

The new rail operating contract will be procured within the context of AT’s transformation of public transport over the last 15 years and will be introduced within an environment of ongoing game changing initiatives, including the City Rail Link (CRL), next generation ticketing, additional electric trains, extension of the electrified network and a third main to ease congestion and conflict between passenger and freight services. Adding to the challenge will be continued rapid population and patronage growth.

Development of a new rail franchise provides an opportunity for AT to review how it delivers services across the rail system and how it can best incentivise, remunerate and allocate responsibilities to the parties delivering rail services.

- Auckland Transport (AT) will only accept registration applications from organisations who have the potential to submit an EOI, meet pre-qualification criteria and agree with the participation rules and confidentiality requirements of AT’s Pre-registration Application and Confidentiality Agreement.
- Organisations that have already registered with AT as part of the rail franchise process are not required to register again. Instructions on how to access the EOI data room will be communicated directly to you by AT.
- This Notice of Pre-registration is not an offer to enter into a contract or limit the tender process for any subsequent contract.
