With over 85,000 employees worldwide, Transdev is a truly world-class player in the mobility market, they are a Group with a solid business base operating in 20 countries.
In February 2019 Transdev was award the $1.3 billion contract from the NSW Government for Sydney Ferries. This contract included an “On Demand” ferry trial connecting wharves like Rozelle Bay and Blackwattle Bay to larger transport interchanges like Pyrmont and Barangaroo where commuters can join either a main ferry route or jump on to a bus service.
