FOUR companies have so far responded to the invitation issued by the Department of Transportation and Communications calling for interested bidders for the Operations and Maintenance of the Light Rail Transit Line 2 (LRT-2).
The four potential bidders who already bought the needed bid documents are San Miguel Corporation, GT Capital, Marubeni, and Ayala-MPIC.
Last month, the Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) has postponed by a month the bidding for the maintenance contract of Light Rail Transit (LRT) Lines 1 and 2 to allow more time for bidders to study the bid documents and prepare reasonable bids.
The LRTA also said the deadline for submission and opening of bids for the P1.33 billion three-year maintenance contract for the LRT-2, currently set for August 29, 2014, has been moved to September 24, 2014.
LRT-2 is a 13.8-kilometer mass transit line that traverses five cities in Metro Manila—Pasig, Marikina, Quezon, San Juan and Manila.
