Regional Bus Services Procurement – Phase 1 Contracts 1-14

Contracts to provide regional public transport bus services in 14 contract areas of South Australia have opened for tender, with a key goal of providing sustainable services for regional communities.

With many of South Australia’s existing regional public transport bus service contracts expiring soon, the State Government has begun the first phase of a procurement process to finalise bus providers to run these important services through to 2035.

Existing and prospective service providers are invited to submit proposals via the SA Tenders website from 28 June 2022 – 13 October 2022.

To apply visit:  21C476 – Regional Bus Services Procurement – Phase 1 Contracts 1-14
