The NSW Government announced in May 2017 that it will competively tender the service of Bus Region 6 - part of Sydney's metropolitan bus service network.

Bus Region 6 services the Inner Western and South Western suburbs from the CBD west to Strathfield and Olympic park, and is currently operated by the NSW State Transit Authority (STA) on a five year contract that commenced in July 2013.

In July 2017, the NSW Government began the competitive tender process.

In announcing the service contract, the NSW Government noted the STA consistently underperformed private operators in punctuality and overall customer satisfaction indicators, with the Bus Region 6 service recording the highest number of complaints in recent years.

Under the contract the NSW Government will continue to own all Bus Region 6 buses and assets, set fares and timetables, and regulate safety and operational standards.

Private operators will have to compete and re-apply for contracts every five to 10 years, with their contracts only renewed if they meet high performance standards.

The tender process will close in the last quarter of 2017, with a new operator expected to be selected in early 2018 and operating by July 2018.
