IPART determines the maximum fare increases for buses, trains, light rail and ferry services for metropolitan, regional and some rural transport. We also make recommendations on maximum taxi and private ferry fares and regulate the prices charged for access to rail infrastructure.
IPART monitors compliance with the NSW Rail Access Undertaking. The Undertaking provides for third party access to the rail network in NSW of which RailCorp, the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) and Transport for NSW (TfNSW) are the owners.
IPART monitors the fares of public transport providers to ensure that fares do not exceed the maximums allowed.
Transport for NSW and its agencies are responsible for the delivery of transport services including setting specific fares for different journeys, service levels, timetables, planning, policy, regulation and infrastructure.
IPART publishes reports describing the research and outcomes of all its reviews. You can search through and download any of our publications.
