Re: Competitive tendering hasn’t delivered for public transport, so why reward poor performance?

Yet Transdev is performing excellently in Perth. The difference? The diligence and competence of the agency managing the contract. A recent report I think posted here a while ago found that these operating contracts were running very well in Perth and Adelaide and somewhat less competently in Melbourne and Sydney. Performance benchmarks and minimum levels of competence also need to be set for the state agencies and neither should they be rewarded for failure but expected to run a tight ship. It takes two to tango.
