Fare changes from Sunday 1 January 2017 for rural and regional bus services

12 Dec 2016

On Sunday 1 January 2017, fares for Busways services operating in the north coast region will change after the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) completed its review of fares for passengers using rural and regional bus services for 2017.

The IPART sets the maximum fares that can be charged by rural and regional bus operators. As a result of the review:

  • Some bus fares for north coast customers travelling over 40km will fall by up to 20 cents.
     
  • Fares for Kempsey bus services will change in line with IPART’s fare structure. Customers will no longer pay for the number of segments (group of sections) travelled and instead will pay for the number of sections travelled. This change means:
    • fares will remain the same or decrease for customers travelling less than 24 sections (previously eight segments).
    • fares will increase for distances more than 24 sections (previously eight segments) and are no longer capped at $13.60 for Adult Single tickets.

Busways will also be charging less than the maximum fare determined by IPART for customers travelling over 70 sections. 

Regional Excursion Daily (RED) tickets will also remain capped at $2.50 per ticket.

Customers can view the updated fare schedule below for Busways North Coast services.

For more information on how fares are determined and the maximum fares a rural and regional operator can charge visit IPART’s website.
