Although the initial installation of the BusTrak system occurred approximately 10 years ago, other extensions have been added from then until the present day. There is, therefore, a varying age range of equipment. It is considered, however, that none of the equipment has exceeded its intended product life cycle.
The Client Group requires the services of a Contractor experienced in the maintenance of real-time information and bus priority measures and the development of similar systems to enhance the service that is provided to the public and operators.
Within the lifetime of this contract, further facilities and expansion of the system may be undertaken, depending on availability of funding and the requirements of the Department.
Estimated value excluding VAT:
Range: between 1 500 000 and 4 500 000 GBP
