London subway contract

The Guardian reports, “highly unlikely” that Transport of London will allow a new afternoon distribution contract when the Metro morning contract copmes up for renewal in 2010, “according to a senior figure with knowledge of the process.”

The new morning contract, however, will cover a much shorter time than the 10 years Metro got, and will also be more expensive (than the alleged 1 million a year) – so no surprises here.

The real question is whether the contract is a mere ‘renewal’ meaning Metro gets the first choice or a new tender.
