Road Industry Fact

While often synonymous with the image of transport and logistics, large companies employing more than 200 people constituted only 0.25% of the industry in 2009.

More than 64% of businesses were self-employed persons.(ABS Counts of Australian Businesses, including Entries and Exits, June 2007 to 2009. Cat no: 8165.0.)


The Australian bus and coach sector carries more than 1.5 billion passengers over a distance of 18 billion kilometres annually.

The sector employs more than 40,000 people in bus and coach operations, manufacturers and suppliers. (Bus and Coach Association NSW, 2011.)
