Anaheim looks for P3 advice

Credit: Metrolink

The Anaheim Transportation Network is looking for alternative project delivery strategies to develop an East-West bus rapid transit (BRT) scheme.

Known as ANNA (Advancing Neighborhood Networks for All), the project aims to provide additional capacity for a range of major events and developments, such as the LA 28 Olympic and Paralympic Games, plus the DisneylandForward initiative.

Three potential routes and systems linking major sites have been proposed for the BRT, with their feasibility and P3 applicability set to be analyzed under the consultancy deal.

Once the strategy has been completed, the authority is looking to “immediately” plan/structure a P3 project to deliver the upgrades.

The authority is looking to utilize a 35-year, availability payment model for a design, build, finance and operate P3.

Responses are due November 21, 2023. The tender can be found by clicking here.
