Brazilian city seeks urban transport ideas

Paraná state capital Curtiba in Brazil seeks expressions of interest to shape a public-private partnership (PPP) that will implement electricity-powered public transport modes such as light rail transit.

The submissions from interested parties will be used as an ideas contest, and will form the basis of a future tender for a new transport mode that is silent and non-polluting, the city said in a release.

Current plans entail four routes – Terminal CIC-Centro de Feiras; Barreirinha-Marechal Floriano; Aeroporto-Centro Cívico, and Linha Atuba-Tatuquara – as well as a "free stretch," which will be left open for interested companies to present separate proposals.

Clarifications for expressions of interest may be requested until July 9 and submissions are due July 25. Individuals and groups, both foreign and domestic, are eligible.

Mayor Gustavo Fruet has said the city is also developing a multi-state or multi-municipal PPP plan for public services of common interest such as public transport.
