Welcome

Welcome to our web page for news and information about the tendering of passenger rail traffic in Norway.

The Norwegian railway reform is organized as a project within the Ministry of Transportation. The project will lay the groundwork for the tendering processes; from January 1, 2017, the new Railway Directorate will take over the responsibility.

Togkonkurranse.no will be the hub for information and tendering activities.

Prequalification

Bidders wishing to participate in tenders on the Norwegian railway network must be prequalified in order to take part in the procedures. Requirements for prequalification and more information can be found here.
