II.1.4)Short description:

As part of its Bus connects project, the National transport authority (NTA) plans to introduce standard branded bus stops throughout Ireland. There are approximately 12 000 bus stops throughout the State. The new bus stops will serve all operators, both public and private, and will replace the multiple stops at different locations that are a feature of the existing system. The new bus stop poles will have integrated information carousels incorporating stop specific printed route maps and timetables. The bus stop pole flag and carousel, and hence pole height, will vary depending on the operators using the stop. Real time passenger information (RTPI) poles and display units will be installed at some stops.

The NTA is seeking to enter into 5 multi-party framework agreements for the design and installation of bus stop poles, including all associated works; and 5 contracts for bus stop pole maintenance.
