The Port Authority is embarking on the implementation of a new AirTrain Newark to replace the existing system which is reaching its life expectancy and cannot accommodate the current passenger demand and future needs of the airport.
The new AirTrain will provide for a completely new Right-of-Way (ROW) in a revised alignment to meet the changing Airport layout. The AirTrain Program is also anticipated to include the operations and maintenance (O&M) of the existing AirTrain during construction until the new system is complete and begins revenue service.
Prior to the commencement of a formal procurement process for the AirTrain Program, the Port Authority is seeking feedback from qualified respondents regarding the anticipated scope and proposed project delivery methods for the AirTrain Program, by tomorrow December 5. Qualified Respondents, although not required, are encouraged to provide feedback regarding the AirTrain Program discussed in the Program Briefing Book.
The Port Authority may consider responses to this RFIF when finalizing the scope and project delivery methods for the AirTrain Program.
The Briefing Book is available here.
