The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) is conducting a major review of public transport fares in Sydney and surrounding areas. This Methodology Paper focuses on how we are proposing to determine fares.
The Tribunal has recommended to the Minister of Transport that from 14 August 2006 urban taxi fares should rise 4.0% and country taxi fares should rise 2.9%.
Outlines key issues to be considered in the annual reviews of fares for taxi, private bus and private ferry services in NSW, including quality of service, and social and environmental implications of fare increases.
IPART has completed its 2008 review of private ferry fares under section 9 of the IPART Act and has recommended fare increases to the Minister for Transport.
