Why is the Government doing this?

To further improve the standard of bus services across Sydney, including on the lower North Shore and Northern Beaches.

Bus patronage has increased by more than 50 per cent over the past six years in metropolitan Sydney and we need to address this increasing demand as a matter of urgency.

Under these bus reforms, Sydney’s ageing diesel powered bus fleet will be replaced by electric vehicles, additional services will be delivered and innovative on demand options will be expanded.
