The Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) invites experienced bus operators to tender for nine bus contracts (or bus units) of varying sizes across the Wellington region. These new contracts, to be delivered under the framework of the Public Transport Operating Model (PTOM), represent a first step in reshaping the look, feel and usability of Wellington’s bus services.

The nine bus units available for tender form part of a wider network of 16 bus units, one rail unit and one ferry unit that have been designed to link routes for efficiency and service reliability.
Already avid users of public transport, Wellington has the highest per capita public transport use in the country and one of the highest in Australasia. The Wellington market is receptive and ready for the changes the new contracts will bring.

The new contracts are an opportunity for us to work in partnership to provide a better public transport experience for our customers and to make greater Wellington even greater.
The bus units will be contracted for nine years and there is potential for high performing bus units to be negotiated for an additional six years.

Accessing documents:
The RFT and supporting information is available for bus operators via GWRC’s electronic Data Room.
GWRC invites experienced bus operators to register with us to gain access to the PTOM Data Room by emailing
