Transport
IPART determines the maximum fare increases for buses, trains, light rail and ferry services for metropolitan, regional and some rural transport. We determine a reference price for wholesale ethanol used in making E10 fuel, and monitor the retail marker for E10. We also make recommendations on maximum taxi and private ferry fares and regulate the prices charged for access to rail infrastructure.
IPART sets the maximum fares that can be charged by rural and regional bus operators for regular passenger services outside metropolitan and outer metropolitan regions.
Each year, we make recommendations on the maximum fares that may be charged by seven private ferry operators that provide regular passenger ferry services under contract to the NSW Government in the Sydney, Central Coast and North Coast areas of NSW.
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 publishes reports describing the research and outcomes of all its reviews. You can search through and download any of our publications.
