Sweden: Public transport procurement schedule for 2020 [free access]

July 1, 2020

The bus transport accounts for more than 50 per cent of the total public transport journeys across the country. By the end of 2019, around 90 per cent of buses deployed in the public transport system were powered by fossil-free fuels. 

 

In 2020, around 19 tenders are planned to be launched for the operations of 1,441 buses across Sweden. The authorities will invite bids for the provision of bus services in the city, rural, and regional areas. The majority of these contracts will be awarded by 2021 and the contracts will be in effect from 2022.   

 

Further, two more contracts will be launched for the operations of the metro extension as well as two tram lines (Spårväg City and Lidingöbanan) in Stockholm.

 

The following table provides the details of the procurement schedule in 2020 for Swedish public transport.
