Transfield Services awarded $567 million Adelaide metropolitan bus contract

29 April 2011

Transfield Services’ Light-City Buses business has been awarded a new $567 million contract to operate and maintain Adelaide’s bus transportation network across two of the city’s six public bus regions. The contract has an initial eight year term, with potential for a four year option to extend, subject to government approval.

Working with the South Australia Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure (DTEI), the Company will provide comprehensive operations, network scheduling, maintenance and asset management services for the fleet of buses.

Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Peter Goode said today, “We are bringing to Adelaide the benefit of our broad knowledge and experience in delivering services to critical infrastructure. This includes specific expertise in the safe, efficient and reliable delivery of public transport services.

“This opportunity further expands our presence and long-term commitment to the successful delivery of services in South Australia.”

Transfield Services performs work in South Australia across many sectors that include oil and gas, rail, defence, water, power generation and public transportation.

Transition will commence immediately, with the Company to assume full services from October 2011.
