Dodoma Capital City Commuter Train Services

Tanzania - Reli Assets Holding Company Limited (RAHCO) has issued a tender for the Provision of Consultancy Services for a Feasibility Study and Preliminary Design for Dodoma Capital City Commuter Train Services. In line with the Tanzanian Government's intention to shift the capital city from the commercial city of Dar es Salaam to Dodoma.

Dodoma is expected to become a populated and busy city, which means it will require an integrated Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) plan. The plan should be put into place to assist mobility and green transport for both the citizens of Dodoma and those who will be visiting the city for Government business. The railway is considered to be a backbone for developing the capital city.

The Government of the United Republic of Tanzania, through RAHCO, has a plan to construct a Railway Network to provide public transportation within the city. The overall objective of this project is to promote sustainable mobility and efficiency within Dodoma Capital City. Such commuter rail services shall result in reduced vehicle occupancy, travel times, costs and pollution and, in turn, lead to more economic benefits of the city and its residents. The projected time-frame for the Services will be Nine (9) calendar months.
