New Jersey Transit has issued a Request for Expressions of Interest to identify qualified, experienced firms capable of introducing innovative transportation solutions between the Frank R. Lautenberg Rail Station at Secaucus Junction and the Meadowlands Complex.
The solicitation follows the inaugural “Innovation Challenge” meeting of more than 140 interested parties on Nov. 7, at the Meadowlands.
The Meadowlands provides unique challenges to mass transit, including sporting events and concerts at MetLife Stadium; the American Dream Mall which will have 20,000 employees and 40 million visitors annually; highly sensitive environmental features including the famous meadows and Hackensack River; highly traveled existing roads; and an existing rail line to the stadium from Secaucus Junction.
Transit says it is seeking partners that can provide end-to-end solutions for peak capacity service, including design, build, operations and management as well as identifying the financial resources to make a proposal a reality. The RFEI is available to be downloaded at njtransit.com/challenge. RFEI Responses must be submitted no later than 5 p.m., Jan. 24, 2020, and emailed to email@example.com.
