Metrolinx Transit Procurement Initiative

Jump to: navigation, search

The Metrolinx Transit Procurement Initiative (initially called the Purchasing Co-operative) helps municipalities across Ontario save costs by coordinating their transit purchase and delivery. The unit cost of new buses is reduced thus allowing the savings to be returned to taxpayers or the transit agency.

History

The joint bus purchase initiative was originally started in 2006 with a consortium of six transit agencies: Barrie Transit, York Region Transit, Durham Region Transit, Burlington Transit, London Transit and Transit Windsor. Transit Windsor later dropped out. The buses would be 40 foot diesel buses to be delivered in 2007 and 2008.

In 2008, another joint purchase was placed with more agencies and Metrolinx taking over the initiative. This request for proposal was for 40 foot diesel buses, 40 foot diesel-electric hybrid buses, and 30 foot diesel buses.

A new joint procurement program was created in 2010 for specialized buses, which included transit systems in York Region, Peel Region, Oakville, Burlington, Durham Region, North Bay, and Waterloo Region.
