Country Passenger Transport Infrastructure Grants Scheme (CPTIGS)

Providing subsidies for the construction or upgrade of bus stops in country NSW.

The Transport for NSW 2019/21 round of the Country Passenger Transport Infrastructure Grant Scheme (CPTIGS) is now open.

** Applications close at midday on 30 September 2019 **

The Country Passenger Transport Infrastructure Grants Scheme (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.
