Tayside Region (Taobh Tatha in Gaelic) was a local government region of Scotland from 15 May 1975 to 31 March 1996. It was created by the 1973 Act following recommendations made by the 1969 Wheatley Report which attempted to replace the mishmash of counties, cities, burghs and districts, with a uniform two-tier system of regional and district councils. Following the 1994 Local Government Act, it is now divided into the council areas of Angus, the City of Dundee and Perth and Kinross, which had previously been the region's districts.

Tayside Regional Council directly operated local bus services in the City of Dundee from 1975 until 1986, when bus deregulation under terms of the Transport Act 1985 was introduced. Tayside Buses were eventually privatised and sold to National Express.

Tayside continues to have a joint electoral, valuation, and health boards. It also kept its police and fire services until they were merged on 1 April 2013, with all others to form single Scottish bodies.
