Seattle Center Monorail RFP
Monorail
Seattle Center has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a concessionaire to operate, maintain, market and manage Seattle Center Monorail. The City of Seattle, which owns the Monorail System, is seeking a suitable candidate for a ten-year concession agreement beginning on Jan. 1, 2015. Proposals are due on Jan. 9, 2014. Two trains, a guideway, .9 miles of tracks and two stations comprise the Seattle Center Monorail System. It carries over 2 million annual one-way riders between downtown Seattle and Seattle Center. Apart from capital investment in major maintenance and capital projects, the Monorail has consistently generated positive annual net revenue that is divided between the City and concessionaire.

The concessionaire will be responsible for operating the Monorail, providing routine maintenance services for the trains, guideway, electrical supply system and electrical systems of the ramp, gates and signaling structures, fare collection, janitorial services and station maintenance. Monorail operations must maximize accountability for safety, service reliability, records maintenance, cost control, revenue, business development and regulatory compliance.

Seattle Center encourages potential proposers to attend a tour of the Monorail facilities/equipment and a pre-proposal conference at 1 p.m. on Oct. 29, 2013 in room 310 of Seattle Center Armory. Individual meetings and tours will not be provided. Notes from the conference, along with responses to questions, addendum and announcement, will be available to RFP registrants athttp://ebidexchange.com/seattle

The RFP may be downloaded here and at www.ebidexchange.com/seattle. Proposers must complete a free registration with ebid, at no cost, and they may submit questions about this RFP via email by 5 p.m. on Dec. 4. A written response from the City will be issued no later than Dec. 20. Proposals are due at 5 p.m. on Jan. 9, 2014 at Seattle Center, 305 Harrison Street, Room 109, Seattle, WA 98109. All proposer communications concerning this concession opportunity must be directed to: Joan Rosenstock, Strategic Advisor II, Joan.rosenstock@seattle.gov or 206 684-7351.
