Our 85th Anniversary

Our 85th anniversary

2018 marks 85 years of Sydney buses, and to celebrate we have decked out 12 State Transit buses in historic markings that customers can catch.

The first government bus ran in 1932. On Christmas Day, thousands of people tried out the new Route 144 from Cremorne Junction to Manly.

These 12 buses capture special moments in Sydney and State Transit’s history, from the camouflage buses used in 1942 to transport troops along the coastline to the commemorative buses for Queen Elizabeth’s first trip to Australia, the 1988 Bicentenary celebration and Sydney Olympic themed buses in the nineties.

These buses will run throughout routes in Sydney – see if you can catch one!
