CDC Victoria, a subsidiary of ComfortDelGro is pleased to announce our acquisition of Tullamarine Bus Lines Pty Ltd, in a move that will further strengthen our presence in Victoria. The acquisition is yet another opportunity for CDC Victoria to deliver better bus services to the communities that we serve, while expanding our reach to the north-west of Metropolitan Melbourne.

Tullamarine Bus Lines, which operates seven bus routes under contract with Public Transport Victoria (PTV), is a family-owned bus company located close to Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport in the north-west of Metropolitan Melbourne. Besides the route buses, Tullamarine Bus Lines operates contracted school services and a small taxi management business called Cabways.

CDC Victoria currently operates 74 route bus services across the western and eastern suburbs of Melbourne, as well as in Ballarat and Geelong. With the acquisition, CDC Victoria will run 81 route bus services and have a fleet close to 500 buses.

CDC Victoria's expansion to Melbourne's north-west

CDC Victoria, a subsidiary of ComfortDelGro, will continue to operate its existing metropolitan bus networks in Melbourne after signing new ten-year contracts with Public Transport Victoria.

The new Melbourne bus contracts have a strong focus on improving services and putting passengers first. The contracts also emphasise on-time running and customer service to provide passengers with a professional and reliable service. We look forward to work closely with the government to deliver better bus services in the communities that we serve.

The new bus contracts will commence on 1 July 2018 and, subject to meeting performance targets, will run for 10 years.

CDC Victoria began providing bus services in 2009 to passengers in the inner-east and western suburbs of Melbourne, as well as to the people of the Greater Cities of Ballarat and Geelong.

Effective 1st January 2018

Public Transport Victoria (PTV) has today announced the annual fare adjustment for 2018.

From 1 January 2018, most public transport fares will rise by 4.7 per cent. This comprises an increase of 2.2 per cent (CPI - Consumer Price Index), plus 2.5 per cent announced in the December 2013 Budget update.

The adjustment will keep fares in line with CPI and contributes to the ongoing operation of the trains, trams and buses on our public transport network.

For regional Victorians, the cost of getting around town will remain unchanged, with the State Government capping the cost of a trip within the same zone at $2.40 for the third consecutive year.

PTV is also introducing a number of changes to concessions.

Free off-peak travel for Primary School groups

From 1 January, Victorian Primary School groups can apply for free travel between 9.30am and 3.30pm on metropolitan and regional services. This will make educational outings simpler and cheaper for schools and parents. Up to four accompanying adults can also travel for free with each group.

Free travel at weekends for caregivers

Access to free travel on Victoria’s train, tram and bus services for Department of Health & Human Services Carer Card holders ('We Care' card) will be extended to include Saturdays. This gives Victorian Carer Card holders the same weekend travel benefits as Disability Support Pensioners, Victorian Seniors Card holders, Disability Support Pensioners and Carer Payment recipients.

Zone 1+2 customers will pay $8.60 for a daily fare, a saving of $3.52 compared to the same fare in 2014, and $6.80 less than the current $15.40 daily fare in Sydney.

In addition, public transport will be free across Victoria on Christmas Day and after 6pm on New Year’s Eve to help people celebrate with family and friends.
