Tender Details


Transport for NSW (TfNSW) has announced that it will commence the transition of Sydney’s bus fleet to zero emission buses (ZEBs) to support the NSW Government’s goal to reach net zero emissions by 2050. This will help TfNSW take advantage of the many benefits of zero emissions technology to improve the sustainability of transport in NSW, including reduced carbon emissions, operational cost savings, and better customer experience.


The objective of this RFEOI is to identify and enable trials of ZEBs across the Sydney/Outer Sydney metropolitan area, which can allow the cost-effective testing of these emerging technologies and their  supporting infrastructure and services that help support a net zero outcome. TfNSW wishes to commence the development of the trials as soon as possible to gain learnings to support the ongoing transition to a ZEB fleet.
