Arequipa begins to concession Mistibus routes (Peru)
The government of Peru's Arequipa province in the southwestern region of the same name has begun the process to concession 80 routes of the Mistibus mass transportation system for Arequipa city.


Tender documents for the bus rapid transit (BRT) system's two main routes, as well as 35 principal and 43 feeder bus routes, will be available for purchase through October 29, the Arequipa municipal website reported.


Interested firms have until November 2 to submit technical and financial bids.


The concessions are scheduled to be awarded on November 15, with winning firms signing contracts on November 30.


The concession terms for the BRT routes and the other bus routes will be 13 and 10 years, respectively.


Mistibus is aimed at reducing pollution in Arequipa, and is based on similar bus systems that have been implemented in Colombian cities Bogota and Pereira.


The system will cost an estimated 227mn soles (US$81.3mn), and will be partly financed by a US$60mn loan from the Andean Development Corporation (CAF).
