Metrolinx is accepting Requests for Information (RFI) for potential Beverage Partnership

Metrolinx is an agency of the Government of Ontario, overseeing GO Transit, PRESTO, and UP Express. Metrolinx’ s GO Transit service serves a population of more than 7 million people throughout the Greater Toronto Hamilton area (GTHA). We are embarking on a massive transformation of the GO Rail network - the backbone of regional rapid transit in the GTHA – to give customers a faster, more convenient way to connect with the things that matter. Metrolinx provides communities with the connection to the people, places and events that matter to them! Union Station is one of many hubs centered in downtown Toronto with direct access to Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre, Ripley’s Aquarium, and the CN Tower. Exhibition Station provides direct access to Budweiser Stage, BMO Field, CNE, Honda Indy and many more cultural events and festivals.

Metrolinx, through this Expression of Interest (“EOI”), is seeking a partnership with an alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage partner for GO Transit and UP Express.  The objective of the partnership is to build a program that will maximize partner investment through direct connections and experiences with the Metrolinx customer: the sports fan, the music fan, the festival goer, the commuter! Metrolinx is committed to working together to create a partnership that will meet shared objectives, increase market share and provide a positive customer experience. 

Responses to the Request for Information will be accepted until 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 through Electronic Bid Submission (EBS) at MERX.
