BRTS for Pereira and Dosquebradas (MEGABUS) commissioned in august 2006.

12 Problems encountered / solutions. 1. Utility networks: Lack of detailed inventory Utilities cannot presently afford expansion or renewal, and charging them for such interventions has been difficult. Delays in approval of infrastructure designs by utilities. 2. Designs and tender processes: 3. Funding for indivicual projects. Infrastructure designs have required extensive adjustments to comply with operational requirements. Lack of participation and ownership of local authorities during design phase. Learning and compliance of Multilateral Banks procurment norms and safeguards. Signing of co-financing agreements with local authorities and delivery agencies. Compliance of Banks procurment norms and safeguards was a condition for disbursement of credit monies. 4. Operation Preparation of tender documents Project socialization to potential bidders.
