In October 2019 the NSW Government announced it will competitively tender all Sydney metropolitan bus contracts. There are 13 bus region contracts that will be tendered progressively over the coming three years.

Among these 13 contracts, the NSW Government will be competitively tendering the remaining three regions operated by the State Transit Authority. These are regions 7, 8 and 9 that cover Sydney's Northern Beaches, Ryde, Gladesville, Lower North Shore, the CBD, and the Eastern Suburbs. These will be put to tender by early 2020.

Existing high-frequency services on key routes will be included in the contracts.

The new contracts will increase the number of services and also provide on demand options. The NSW Government will invite global public transport operators to bid for the contracts.

Under the new contracts, the NSW Government will still own State Transit buses and assets such as depots. They will also retain the right to regulate timetables, safety, service priorities and set fares under the Opal system. Operators will be given some autonomy in the way they plan and run services.

The NSW Government has also announced it will be replacing Sydney's diesel bus fleet with electric vehicles.
