Industry engagement

    Through a record $41.4 billion investment, we are connecting people, shaping cities and boosting economic growth for NSW.

    Over the next four years we will deliver over $41.4 billion in transport infrastructure, improving our networks and increasing public transport capacity for our customers. Through this record investment, we are connecting people, shaping cities and boosting economic growth for NSW.

    To deliver our transport projects as efficiently as possible, we need to collaborate with our industry partners for their valuable input and expertise. Working together means that we can increase our capability and deliver the most innovative solutions to the challenges we face. 

    We aim to provide timely and relevant information about our major projects and upcoming opportunities to our industry partners and suppliers. We do this with regular engagement opportunities, industry briefings and creating a culture of collaboration and open communication within Transport – we want to do business with you.

    Industry Briefing Notification

    On Thursday 23 November 2017 Transport for NSW released the Rural and Regional On Demand Transport Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEOI).

    We want to identify and implement new, creative and better ways to ensure people can utilise public transport to travel to their desired destination quickly, safely, easily and efficiently at a time that suits them and improve public transport for customers in various settings in Rural and Regional NSW.

    To achieve this, we are seeking innovative ideas from the market to develop and run a number of pilots aimed at identifying different solutions to achieve our goals.  The pilots will be varied to ensure we test a number of great ideas for improving public transport.  

    A key outcome of the RFEOI is to deliver greater flexibility and mobility in the transport offering, focussing on the needs of Rural and Regional communities. Learnings from the pilots will help inform TfNSW’s thinking for future service contracts and create potential opportunities for new models and entrants in the transport network of the future.

    The RFEOI process is being conducted in a markedly different way and is designed to allow creative ideas which can be further developed through interactive sessions to identify those with the most potential to be developed into a pilot project.  

    For avoidance of doubt, the scope of the pilots is not restricted to bus services and may include any form of transport which provides potential to improve customer services.

    Industry Briefing Details

    The industry briefings provide an opportunity for respondents to learn more about the process and to ask any questions.

    Collaboration Opportunity

    TfNSW will work with participants who can contribute innovative systems and ideas in their own right or in partnership with others.

    For example, TfNSW may assist by linking a participant proposing piloting an application that supports and encourages on demand transport with others who may be able to help provide an end-to-end solution. This will be done through industry collaboration events to assist with opening communication channels between parties.

    These events will be conducted immediately after the industry briefings, (i.e on the same day and in the same venue). The venue will be open for use until 3pm.

    Attendance at these events is entirely voluntary and it does not form part of the RFEOI evaluation process. TfNSW's role in this event is purely one of facilitator.


    If you wish to attend any of the events, registration is essential.

    Registrations can be made through the eventbrite booking page at the following locations:

    Interactive sessions registration

    Transport for NSW (TfNSW) is now taking registrations for respondents of the Rural and Regional On Demand Transport RFEOI to attend an interactive session with TfNSW.

    The purpose of these sessions is to help respondents develop the most relevant, creative and innovative proposal possible and provides the opportunity for respondents to discuss their emerging proposals with a panel of TfNSW stakeholders. 

    Feedback will be provided in real-time to enable fast re-iteration and refinements. The sessions will be conducted in accordance with the terms and conditions under the RFEOI, WS1177761373.  

    • There are some key principles that shall apply to the interactive sessions:
    • Confidential and commercial propriety information will be protected, unless information should be made available to all respondents 
    • Anything discussed will not commit or limit TfNSW or you – positions and proposals may change
    • The sessions are not part of the evaluation process.

    Interactive sessions details

    The interactive sessions will be held in January and February 2018. Dates, times and locations will be allocated following the closure of registrations. TfNSW will group interactive sessions in designated locations to streamline the process.

    Details of the sessions will be confirmed with registered parties by COB Friday 29 December 2017. 

    The attendees at each individual interactive session will be limited to TfNSW staff and the registered attendee’s nominated representatives.  

    Each interactive session will be set for a maximum of 45 minutes.  

    Registration Information

    Registration for interactive sessions is essential.

    Construction Industry Leadership Forum 

    A forum of leaders from industry and the Victorian and NSW public sectors has been established to improve collaboration and action around procurement and delivery of major government infrastructure projects, including addressing capability and capacity constraints.

    The overall purpose of the Forum is to improve the effectiveness and value (to governments and industry) of the procurement and delivery of governments’ infrastructure programs.

    Pipeline of work

    In addition to listing current and business opportunities on the eTendering website, we have created a detailed plan that outlines our infrastructure spending plans and project stages. This will help our industry partners and their stakeholders to plan their own schedule of works. View the Infrastructure & Services Portfolio Pipeline.

    Roads and Maritime Services has produced the Forward Work Plan 2021, visit the RMS Major Projects page for more information and to download the plan.
