In April 2019 Transport Minister Phil Twyford recommended that the Govenor-General make a land transport rule to provide flexibility to bus operators when scheduling rest breaks for bus drivers in accordance with changes to the Employment Relations Act.  The Governor-General made the Work Time in Large Passenger Service Vehicles Rule on 29 April 2019, which came into effect on 6 May 2019, and expired on 6 May 2020.
