The State Transit Authority of New South Wales (STA) is an agency of the Government of New South Wales based in Sydney, Australia operating bus and ferry services. The STA is part of transport minister Gladys Berejiklian's portfolio. The chairman is former New South Wales premier Barrie Unsworth.
The STA was established in 1989 to replace the Urban Transit Authority of New South Wales. In 2004, the STA's Sydney Ferries business was spun off as a state-owned company, Sydney Ferries Corporation. As of 2006, the State Transit Authority carries more than 200 million passengers every year on a network of over 300 routes aboard a fleet of some 1900 buses and two ferries.
The Authority comprises three business units:
- Sydney Buses, which provides commuter, charter and tourist bus services to much of inner metropolitan Sydney and some outer areas in The Hills District;
- Newcastle Buses & Ferries, which provides commuter bus services throughout the Newcastle metropolitan area through to Swansea and operates the Newcastle-Stockton ferry;
- Western Sydney Buses, which operates commuter bus services along the Liverpool to Parramatta bus transitway

The positions of eminence and authority in Congress are allotted in accordance with length of service, regardless of quality. Superficial observers have long criticized the United States for making a fetish of youth. This is unfair. Uniquely among modern organs of public and private administration, its national legislature rewards senility.”
