Buses are a staple addition to sustainable public transport systems in cities worldwide, connecting passengers to their end destinations or to other services such as air, road and rail.

Global Experience and Local Success

Bus rapid transit is growing in popularity as a service complementary to the public transport system. Offering increased capacity in a relatively fast turn around time, buses also offer benefits of reliability and cost efficiency.


WSP delivers integrated busway solutions, designing and planning dedicated lanes in alignment with existing stations, roads and airports. We provide systems that combine the latest technology with efficient, low-impact vehicle operations and innovative design.


Our approach to bus route and service planning is holistic, working with key stakeholders to understand the specific needs of a system, identifying existing network inefficiencies and tailoring a solution that is fit for purpose and available resources.


WSP in Action

We’ve delivered better outcomes for transport projects by designing busways for:

  • Wynyard Station exploring the impacts of forecasted additional buses on the existing road and bus network in the heart of the growing Sydney CBD
  • The Northern Busway Stage 2 - designing a 3 km two-lane, bus-only underground road forming part of the wider Airport Link project to improve road accessibility to the Brisbane airport
  • Northern Beaches Bus Rapid Transit - assisting to develop the project’s final business case for the bus network plan for a sustainable transport network to Sydney’s Northern Beaches
  • The Melbourne Airport Bus Rapid Transit Planning Study - investigating potential options to achieve desired standards for bus rapid transit services connecting Melbourne Airport to the CBD
