In late-June 2022, Otago Regional Council (ORC) intends to release an RFP for the purchase of technical
consultancy services to develop a public transport fares and frequency business case for Dunedin.


In 2018 the government announced the location for the $1.4B New Dunedin Hospital (NDH). Ministry
of Health (MOH) then asked Waka Kotahi and Dunedin City Council (DCC) to look at a change to the
roads to improve access and integration between the hospital and the city, including considering a
change to the configuration of SH1 through Dunedin. This was the catalyst to progress work DCC
started in 2013, looking at the benefits a change to the configuration of SH1, including making it a
two-way system, could bring.

A business case completed in 2018 confirmed the scope should be broadened to include access to the
city by all transport modes and that’s the approach taken by the Shaping Future Dunedin Transport
(SFDT) Programme Business Case (from which the ORC business case stems).A key output of the SFDT
Programme is a mode shift programme. For public transport, the aspiration of the programme is to
increase travel to work by public transport from 3.4% in 2018, to 8% in 2030.
To give effect to that mode shift target, the ORC business case will develop a plan to grow Dunedin
mode share and reduce carbon emissions from single occupant vehicles.

There are three components to the successful development of the fares and frequency business case.

They are:
1. willingness to pay survey (Package 1);
2. modelling (Package 2); and
3. analysis and development of the business case documents (Package 3).

This future procurement opportunity will be for Packages 1 and 3. In particular, ORC wishes to test
with industry the approach to separate procurement of the two packages.
We anticipate that the Contract will commence in Q3 2022, with the final reporting to be delivered by
March 2023.

Council will run an online industry briefing on the PTBC and this procurement opportunity at 10:00 am
on 15 June 2022.

To register for the briefing, and/or if you have any questions relating to this future opportunity, please
contact us via email no later than 5:00 pm, 14 June 2022 (E -
