Chilean Bus Program Seeks U.S. Commercial Proposals

The U.S. Commercial Service, U.S. Department of Commerce, seeks proposals for a bus renovation program in progress at Transantiago, the public transit system in Santiago, Chile.

The agency is undergoing major renovations to its bus fleet and complementary technological services. The renovation of the city’s aging fleet of buses provides business opportunities as the government awards new contracts, especially to companies that can offer innovations in green technology and safety in the renovation of 1,500 buses including 90 powered by electricity and 90 high standard buses (CNG or hybrid).

The bidding guidelines for the Transantiago tender are available for purchasing (around U.S. $500). For information, click here.

The Ministry of Transportation in Chile expects to receive the proposals by Dec. 27 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The U.S. Commercial Service also is interested in receiving information about U.S. chassis manufacturers and CNG stations for buses. For further information, ­contact Claudia Melkonian.
