HS2 is preparing to invite tenders in October for the 2.4km automated people mover train route that will connect its Solihull interchange station with Birmingham airport and the NEC.
The shuttle will travel on an elevated viaduct for its entire route, 12m above the ground at its highest point.
The contract will include four stops and a maintenance facility for the 20m long trains.
Before inviting bids HS2 is carrying out a market testing exercise with document available here.
