Tender Details

Bus Service Contracts – Market Sounding 

The NSW Government has announced reforms to improve bus services for customers and commence the transition of Sydney’s fleet to zero emission buses. 

Transport for NSW will shortly be commencing a competitive tendering process for bus contracts across Sydney with the aim of introducing additional bus services, innovative new service options and a new fleet of zero emission buses that will reduce air and noise pollution. 

The process will commence in 2020 and will for the first time include services operated by State Transit in Sydney Metropolitan Bus Service Contract regions 7, 8 and 9. 

Before the tender process commences, Transport for NSW is gathering feedback from industry through a market sounding process.  

Companies who operate bus services, or are an experienced participant in the bus services supply chain, are invited to register for market sounding.


NSW Regions: Cumberland/Prospect, Nepean, Northern Sydney, Inner West, South East Sydney, South West Sydney
