The NSW Government released its roadmap to deliver the state’s future transport network, the Future Transport Strategy 2056, in 2018. The Bus Priority Infrastructure Program supports this vision by delivering infrastructure that make bus services faster and more reliable, such as bus lanes, bus priority at intersections or more efficient bus stop placement.

The Future Transport Strategy 2056 is the NSW Government’s overarching strategy to achieve a 40 year vision for our transport system.
Buses are a key part of Sydney’s growing and evolving public transport network. Sydney’s buses provide more than 220 million trips a year across the city. As Sydney grows, the bus system needs to meet the challenges growth brings.
Future Transport 2056’s focus is to enable people and goods to move safely, efficiently and reliably around Greater Sydney. The Bus Priority Infrastructure Program introduces measures to support reduced travel time for bus services and to make them more reliable by prioritising public transport on key corridors.
Road and Maritime supports Future Transport 2056 by delivering projects that make bus services faster, reliable and accessible. These projects help to provide:
- red bus lanes
- bus priority at intersections
- more efficient bus stop placement
- a more seamless customer experience through improvements to wayfinding signage or accessible ground surface indicators
Roads and Maritime will provide further information on specific bus priority projects as the program is rolled out.
