By 2023, competitive tendering for railways will be obligatory (with some exceptions) for all PSO services in the EU. The paper elaborates a case study of the Czech Republic. The aim is to identify factors that can influence the number of bidders. To attract more bidders, contracting authorities should improve the relationship and communication with rail undertakings. Moreover, they should announce a tender in sufficient time (three to four years) before the start of operation when the contract includes new vehicles. Different procuring authorities should avoid their tenders taking place simultaneously, and using a gross-cost contract attracts more bidders.
