Transit Systems Sydney is an Australian bus operator in Sydney. It is a subsidiary of Transit Systems.

History[edit]

In November 2012 Transit Systems was awarded a contract by Transport for NSW to operate region 3 bus services in Western Sydney, taking over services operated by Busabout, Hopkinsons, Metro-link and Westbus. Transit Systems also took over route T80 on the Liverpool-Parramatta T-way from Western Sydney Buses.[1][2] Operations commenced on 13 October 2013.

On 1 July 2018, Transit Systems took over the operation of region 6 from State Transit on an eight-year contract operating services in the Canterbury-Bankstown, Eastern Suburbs, Inner West, North Shore and St George regions.[3]

Fleet[edit]

In region 3 Transit Systems operates a combination of buses inherited from its predecessors, 65 new built buses and some second hand purchases including Volgren bodied Mercedes-Benz OC 500 LEs from Brisbane Transport and some older high-floors purchased from the Dineen Group and Hopkinsons. As of July 2018, the fleet consisted of 835 buses.[4][5] In mid 2017, Transit Systems purchased six Bustech CDi double deckers for use on route T80.[6]

Depots[edit]
