In the city and inner suburbs the state-owned Sydney Buses has a monopoly. In the outer suburbs, service is contracted to many private bus companies as its mentioned in Sydney bus map. Construction of a network of rapid bus transitways in areas not previously well served by public transport began in 1999, and the first of these, the Liverpool–Parramatta Rapid Bus Transitway, opened in February 2003. State government-owned Sydney Ferries runs numerous commuter and tourist ferry services on Sydney Harbour and the Parramatta River.
The State Transit Authority of New South Wales (STA) is an agency of the Government of New South Wales based in Sydney, Australia operating bus and ferry services. The Authority comprises three business units: Sydney Buses, which provides commuter, charter and tourist bus services to much of inner metropolitan Sydney and some outer areas in The Hills District; Newcastle Buses & Ferries, which provides commuter bus services throughout the Newcastle metropolitan area through to Swansea and operates the Newcastle-Stockton ferry; Western Sydney Buses, which operates commuter bus services along the Liverpool to Parramatta bus transitway as you can see in Sydney bus map.
Sydney Buses is a commuter bus service operating in Sydney. The network—comprising buses in the series 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500—is loosely based on the reach of the city now-defunct tram network (see Trams in Sydney). In recent years, Sydney Buses has grown significantly through acquisitions of smaller bus companies as reforms to contracting arrangements encourage consolidation in the industry (see Sydney bus map). This growth has meant that the fleet size has increased without a corresponding drop in the fleet average age.
