Transdev unsuccessful in Melbourne Bus Franchise

It is with great disappointment that we share the news that Transdev has not been successful in our bid to continue to operate the Melbourne Bus Franchise.

We thank the Victorian Government and our client, the Department of Transport, for the opportunity to operate a world-class bus network for Victorians over the past nine years.

During this time, our team of more than 1300 Journey Makers have achieved some remarkable results including:

  • record on time running and reliability;
  • strengthening the customer experience;
  • partnering with the Victorian Government to bring Victoria’s first fully electric bus to the public transport network;
  • and continuing to seamlessly operate our essential service during a challenging period during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to sincerely thank our people, the Victorian Government, our client, the Department of Transport and each and every one of our stakeholders for your valued support and collaboration in delivering a clean, safe and reliable bus service for Victorians.

In the coming months, we will continue to deliver a clean, safe and reliable bus service for Victorians as we ensure a smooth transition to the new operator who will commence operations in late January 2022.

Thank you for being a part of our journey.
