This toolkit was prepared to assist public entities in the state of Maharashtra in India in developing public-private partnership (PPP) urban bus transport projects.
It addresses the growing worldwide interest in the use of light rail metro transit (LRMT) schemes to provide urban transport solutions and reviews the potential use of public-private partnership (PPP).
The core principle behind the PPP is the creation of a contractual bubble – a framework of contracts.
The purpose of these principles is to help government work with private sector partners to finance and bring to fruition projects in areas of vital economic importance, such as transport, water and power supply and telecommunications.
The Toolkit is a reference guide for public authorities in developing countries for the development of PPP programs in the highways sector, particularly in assisting in PPP policy development, project preparation and the sourcing and more.
