    Articulated low floor busWe have come a long way from operating one bus route in 1932. We currently move around 200 million passengers each year on over 300 bus routes across Sydney and around 30 bus routes and a ferry service in Newcastle. Providing transport to the people of Sydney and Newcastle requires the combined effort of over 4,500 staff.

    We are working with the New South Wales State Government to meet the requirements of the State Plan and the Bus Reform Program.
