Have a say on fare pricing for public transport travel

THE Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) is calling for community input into how public transport fares should be set until 2024.

IPART is reviewing maximum fares across all rail, bus, ferry and light rail services on which the Opal card can be used in Sydney, Newcastle, the Central Coast, Wollongong, the Blue Mountains and the Hunter.
A spokesperson said that while public transport use benefited the whole community, it also cost money to provide. It is increasingly important that fares provide the best possible value for money for both passengers and taxpayers.
Proposed fares will be released for public comment in November before the final determination on maximum fares is delivered to the NSW Government in February 2020.
Submissions close on June 14. For more, visit
