CDC NSW celebrates new Central Coast joint venture

CDC NSW has joined forces with Red Bus to continue the Shore family legacy running services on the Central Coast

Australian operator CDC NSW is continuing to move on its latest contract that comes courtesy of a joint venture (JV) with Red Bus Services.

The pair, who will operate as Red Bus CDC NSW, is successful in its bid to operate Outer Metropolitan Bus Service Contract Region 7.

The contract will allow the JV to provide safe and reliable services to communities across the Central Coast including The Entrance, Gosford, Wyong and surrounding areas.

CDC NSW says Red Bus has provided transport solutions for more than 80 years to the Central Coast, with the JV supporting the ongoing Shore family legacy well into the future.

“We have a proud history of service to our community and we are so thrilled to continue the Red Bus legacy by joining with CDC NSW,” Red Bus Services managing director John Shore says.

“We are better together and importantly this joint venture allows us to honour our 80-plus-year history by continuing to provide our community with safe and reliable transport solutions well into the future.”

CDC NSW CEO David Mead says this contract adds to the four Outer Metropolitan Bus Service Contract regions and two Metropolitan regions that it operates over the past 18 years.

“We are excited to be working with Red Bus Services to deliver these vital services to the communities they have served faithfully for more than 80 years,” Mead says.

“We have a strong background in bus operations on a national scale with systems, tools and processes needed to meet and deliver Transport for NSW requirements for operators and our customers. We are incredibly proud to be delivering this contract with Red Bus.”

This tender win builds upon successful tender wins for CDC NSW over the past 12 months.

Awarded by the New South Wales government, this contract with Red Bus CDC NSW is worth more than $200 million and will start on July 7, 2024, running for eight years.

This contract will also expand CDC NSW’s operations to employ more than 2,500 people in New South Wales.
