NJT Seeks HBLR O&M Contractor

New Jersey Transit (NJT) has initiated a procurement process for an O&M (Operations and Maintenance) contractor for the 20.6-mile, 24-station Hudson-Bergen Light Rail (HBLR) system, which has operated under the initial DBOM (Design-Build-Operate-Maintain) contract held by 21st Century Rail Corporation since its inception in 2000. “As that contract gets set to expire in the coming years, NJT is evaluating all options on how best to continue delivering high-quality operation and maintenance of the system,” the agency said.

Hudson-Bergen Light Rail turns Sweet 16

In April 2016, New Jersey Transit’s Hudson-Bergen Light Rail (HBLR) celebrates its 16th anniversary of operation. HBLR was the first successful DBOM (Design/Build/Operate/Maintain) deployment of a transit system in the modern era (post-World War II) and represents a throwback to when public-private partnerships were commonly utilized to build and operate railways.
