SouthLink forms part of the Australian Transit Enterprises (ATE) group who are 100% Australian owned. The group were successful in securing the Outer South, Metro Bus contract area in 2000 and additional expansion was achieved in 2005 via winning the Outer North contract.
Further to this, ATE was a Joint Partner in the Adelaide Hills operation which commenced operations in 2000 operating as TransitPlus. In 2010 the operation of the Hills contract transferred fully to SouthLink.
The contract for the continued operation of these areas was awarded to SouthLink in 2011.
