A new study will investigate how light rail will work with the existing public transport network in Canberra.
The ACT Government has agreed to begin construction of a light rail network by 2016 as part of its parliamentary agreement with Greens MLA Shane Rattenbury.
Sustainable Development Minister Simon Corbell says the study will begin early next year.
"It's absolutely essential that the light rail and bus operations coordinate and work hand in hand," he said.
"That's the purpose of this release of tender work is to do the detailed analysis needed to make sure that people can move seamlessly and efficiently."
Mr Corbell says the study will also take into account pedestrian and cyclist requirements in the design of stations and stops.
"This is just one of many investigations and studies the government will have to undertake in the delivery of what will be the largest capital works project seen to date in the ACT," he said.
