Raleigh - The N.C. Department of Transportation is looking to establish partnerships that will offer on-board services on NC By Train's Piedmont route between Raleigh and Charlotte. These partnerships would have opportunities ranging from selling food and beverages to souvenir merchandise on the train.
"We look forward to receiving thoughtful and entrepreneurial proposals from North Carolina businesses that are interested in improving amenities aboard our Piedmont Trains," said Rail Division Director Paul Worley. "The North Carolina General Assembly has given the department authorization to generate revenue on our rail passenger services and we are excited for this opportunity to partner with local businesses."
The request for proposals document, with details concerning what is required for the partnership, as well as the selection process, is available on line. The deadline for all proposals to be submitted is Sept. 9, 2016.
