Montreal-Trudeau Airport: Request for Proposals for the Management of Taxi and Limousine Services

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 24, 2009) - Aeroports de Montreal would like to remind the bidders that there will be an information session tomorrow, Wednesday, March 25, regarding the request for proposals (RFP) for the management of taxi and limousine services at Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. At the meeting, Aeroports de Montreal will be able to answer potential bidders' questions. Details of the meeting are contained in the RFP document available at www.admtl.com in the Business/Suppliers/Calls for Tenders section.

"Aeroports de Montreal, in an effort to improve customer service quality, wants to modify the framework for managing taxi and limousine services, but the request for proposals does not necessarily mean a change in the system for issuing taxi and limousine permits and their allocation by the agglomerations," said Pierre-Paul Pharand, Director of Airport Operations.

"In fact Aeroports de Montreal is open to any and all proposals that would result in improving service, while complying with current regulations. We are leaving it up to the industry to find the best possible formula."

The RFP is open to all types of service providers, such as management firms and taxi associations, capable of effectively and efficiently managing the airport's taxi and limousine services.

The RFP follows a survey of airport customers conducted by Aeroports de Montreal last year to identify users' needs and expectations with regard to taxi and limousine service. The contract also stipulates service and performance criteria, including waiting time, vehicle reliability and cleanliness, as well as drivers' courtesy and their role as ambassadors for Montreal.

Aeroports de Montreal is the local airport authority responsible for the management, operation and development of Montreal-Trudeau and Montreal-Mirabel international airports under the terms of a lease entered into with Transport Canada in 1992. The Corporation employs a total of some 600 persons at both airports and at head office.
