Melbourne's new bus contracts

In 2006, prior to the Victorian Transport Plan, the government invested $1.4 billion in new and upgraded bus services over ten years. It negotiated 29 new contracts with bus companies which started in July 2008. The aim was to develop more local and cross-town bus services to make public transport more accessible for people in the city's middle and outer suburbs and this was carried through to the Victorian Transport Plan. In negotiating the new contracts, the Department of Transport was required to improve the quality and effectiveness of bus services, improve value for money for the government's investment, and to maintain a constructive relationship with the bus industry. This audit examined how well the department negotiated and managed the new metro bus contracts.
