Metrolink procures a full range of products and services, from office supplies, to materials, to construction services for major rail projects, to consultant services. Metrolink’s Purchasing, Contracts and Contract Compliance Department handles most of the major Metrolink contracts as well as routine purchases. The remaining contracts are managed by Metrolink contractors who support system maintenance or operations. All competitive procurements above $25,000 are listed on PlanetBids (Metrolink's vendor database and e-procurement system) and are also advertised in various newspapers covering the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside and San Bernardino.

Read all solicitation packages carefully and be sure that your firm can comply with all requirements before you respond. All solicitation packages state the date and time the offer is due. Be sure your offer arrives by the deadline as Metrolink does not accept late offers. If you have any questions, contact the Contract Administrator responsible for the project.

We have made every effort to make all aspects of the contracting and compliance process as easy, secure and reliable as possible. However, if you need help or have questions, please click here for online assistance. Thank you.
