Country Passenger Transport Infrastructure Grants Scheme (CPTIGS)

The Transport for NSW round of the Country Passenger Transport Infrastructure Grant Scheme (CPTIGS) opens on 1 July of each year.

CPTIGS provides subsidies to support the construction or upgrade of bus stop infrastructure (generally owned and maintained by local councils) across country NSW. The Scheme aims to maximise benefits to country passengers through supporting:

  • more accessible passenger transport, focusing on better connections between bus stops and surrounding communities;
  • an increase in the use of passenger transport in country areas through improved awareness of bus stop locations, kerbside information and improved security (e.g. tactile ground indicators and lighting); and
  • the development of minor infrastructure  to complement passenger service development.

Funding is allocated regionally to facilitate an equitable distribution of the grant support and projects.
