Bus safety legislation

TSV administers the Bus Safety Act 2009 (BSA) and Bus Safety Regulations 2020 (BSR) which provide for safe bus operations in Victoria. The BSA and BSR promote an improved safety culture across bus operations and apply to all commercial and noncommercial operations.

TSV administers the BSA and BSR by:

  • permissioning bus operators
  • auditing operators to ensure they are meeting their safety duties so far as is reasonably practicable
  • undertaking targeted compliance and enforcement activities
  • researching, collecting and analysing bus safety information.
