Tenders are being called for a feasibility study for the $2 billion light rail project between Caloundra and Maroochydore on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.
The Sunshine Coast council has budgeted $4 million for the study, which will also present a business case.
Mayor Mark Jamieson says it is due to be completed by next June, followed by community consultation, with stage one to start by 2020.
"We're working 20 years ahead here in terms of this whole project, but it would need to address population growth projections," he said.
"Where the route would be, where the ideal hubs for the stations would be and all the elements that would be involved in building an effective business case for us to put to the State Government for their financial assistance."
