Transit Australia Group

Transit Australia Group is a leading ‘end to end’ mass transit specialist


We are Australia’s mass transit specialist partnering with governments, public authorities and private operators to innovate and enhance transport products and systems.

Bus design, engineering and manufacturing 

TAG’s manufacturing arm Bustech is Australia’s only advanced bus OEM (original equipment manufacturer) with chassis designed, engineered and made in-house. Bustech is at the forefront of bus design and development including producing the iconic urban double decker (CDi model) and Australia’s first electric bus (ZDi model). Bustech products are manufactured across locations in Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania.  

Mass bus network operations and asset maintenance 

We own and operate six leading urban transit companies across Australia’s east coast which commute millions of people every year. Through these operations, TAG implemented Australia’s first real time tracking system and first 24-hour bus service – and is currently conducting Australia’s first electric bus trial. These are also the only bus operations in Australia with international accreditation for health, safety, environment and quality across their operating systems.

Mass urban network design and mode integration

Our specialist team of network planners, schedulers and continuous improvement specialists is devoted to designing efficient mass transit networks that integrate seamlessly with other transport modes such as metro and light rail. They design networks for both greenfield and brownfield projects as well as for specific needs, including electric vehicles.

International special events and mega events

We offer a complete turnkey transport solution for large special events globally. In partnership with TMS, our capability includes everything from planning and procurement through to bus operations and maintenance and scheduling, planning and optimisation.
