The current daily bus and technology school bus contracts were due to expire on 31 December 2020. These contracts service approximately 1,500 Daily Bus routes and 700 Technology routes.
The Ministry consulted with transport operators and the wider industry in 2018 and carried out further engagement in 2019 on the procurement of new services and contracts. We are using this industry feedback to continue our procurement planning.
To ensure sufficient transition time to new services, we have extended contracts by 12 months. Therefore current contracts will now expire in December 2021.
This page will be updated with more information as our procurement planning progresses.
