Today IPART has released a final report on the review of the maximum fares for private ferries across NSW and a final determination on the Stockton Ferry fare in Newcastle to apply in 2015. The accompanying consultant report are available on our review page.
Of the seven private ferry services under review, we recommend maximum fares remain unchanged for three, with maximum fares for the remaining private ferry services to increase by up to 40 cents per trip (or up to 5.5% after rounding fares) under the final report released today.
IPART’s final determination is that the maximum fare for the Stockton Ferry in 2015 remains unchanged at $2.60. The NSW Government recently announced the roll out of Opal ticketing on the Stockton Ferry, with the Opal fare set at $2.10.
