Posting Summary
Notice is hereby given by the South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority (“TransLink”) of its intent to contract with Hyundai Rotem Company (the “Supplier”) on behalf of TransLink for the supply of twenty-four (24) customized train cars to be used on the Canada Line system.
TransLink has chosen to directly award this contract and not to call for vendor proposals for the following reasons:  
Compatibility with the existing Canada Line cars and system necessitates the use of specific cars to meet the immediate demand for increased capacity. Ordering the same cars is essential in order to avoid duplication of parts inventory, specialized tools and maintenance equipment and changes to established operational protocols. Changing the cars and system would be costly requiring extensive time and resources to implement changes to current infrastructure and operations.
If you wish to object to this decision, submit your detailed objection here by no later than the closing day and time indicated in this posting.   
*Mailed, faxed or responses submitted through other electronic means will not be considered.
