Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Refer to the consignment details to retieve records of interest.

  • Function / Content
    These records were created during the time when the PTC's passenger operation of public transport was split into five separate corporations: V/Line for country rail and feeder bus services, Bayside and Hillside trains (each covering roughly half the Melbourne rail network), and Swanston and Yarra trams. Expressions of interest were invited in October 1998, five successful bidders for the contracts were selected in June 1999 and five operating franchises took effect on 29 August 1999. The contracts within this series outline the franchise agreements and contracts of sale or lease of assets on the network.

  • Recordkeeping System
    No original system for control was given to these records. Later, the legal branch of the Department of Infrastructure numbered the files according to summary entries on their database.

    Arranged by franchisee. Not arranged in database number order which is a multiple number system.
