IPART has been asked by the Minister for Transport to review and determine maximum fares for 7 private ferry operators that provide ferry services under contract with Transport for NSW (TfNSW) from 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2025.
Private ferry operators covered by our review
|Brooklyn Ferry Service||Brooklyn to Dangar Island|
|Captain Cook Cruises||Circular Quay to Lane Cove|
|Central Coast Ferries||Woy Woy to Empire Bay|
|Church Point Ferry Service||Scotland Island and western foreshore of Pittwater|
|Clarence River Ferries||Yamba to Iluka|
|Cronulla and National Park Ferry Service||Cronulla to Bundeena|
|Palm Beach Ferries||Mackerel Beach and the Basin|
As well as determining fares for the next 4 years, our terms of reference require us to consider the impact of the viability payments several private ferry operators receive from TfNSW and any reforms to these payments.
We received a number of submissions in response to our Issues Paper. These are available here.
We will shortly release a Draft Report with our draft decisions on fares and will hold an online public hearing on 18 October 2021.
All interested parties are welcome to attend – you can register here.
