Robust service contracts are critical to the future of public transport

UITP Australia/New Zealand and leading international law firm, Allens, have released a new report which highlights key trends in public transport service contracting in Australia and New Zealand, and how different contracting models can be used to achieve the best outcomes for their jurisdictions.

Frameworks for our Networks: A Review of Public Transport Service Contracts in Australia and New Zealand, draws on information about bus, rail and ferry contracts, across eight jurisdictions, to create the most comprehensive report to date on public transport service contracts in our region.

Providing insight into the contractual frameworks in place throughout Australia and New Zealand, the report explores a range of mechanisms available for implementation in future public transport contracts and considers the outlook for the sector moving forward.

While the report focusses on contracts in Australia and New Zealand, the knowledge it contains is pertinent for any jurisdiction as it analyses how different mechanisms can be used to achieve different goals and outcomes in public transport service delivery.
