Rural and regional bus services

Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) is seeking feedback from rural and regional communities to help set pricing fares for local bus services.

What’s this about?

The review will help determine a maximum fare that bus companies can charge for services from January 2021 to December 2025.

IPART is seeking public feedback to ensure that fares are affordable and services keep improving. 

IPART would like to hear what residents in rural and regional NSW think of these services, and how much they should cost.

The review will have a specific focus on people facing transport challenges. The aim is to set fares so that people with limited transport options have access to services.

The last review lowered fares for a range of services. The new review will look at the impact of those changes and consider whether more reforms are needed.

Have your say

There are two ways you can provide feedback below.

IPART also encourages you to complete a survey to help better understand what influences bus use in rural and regional areas. 

Have your say by Friday 7 August 2020.
