NSW commuters face fare increases

Commuters returning to work in NSW after the holiday break face a 5.4 per cent rise in bus and train tickets.

The cost of an adult single rail ticket will increase by between 20 and 40 cents on the CityRail network, while a weekly rail ticket will increase by up to $3.

On the buses, a single ticket will go up by 10 to 20 cents and a TravelTen card will increase by up to $1.60.

The fare increases are the first rise in public transport costs since April 2010.

The state government announced the increases in December, saying they were necessary to cover the previous Labor government’s decision in January 2011 not to raise fares.

The increases apply on the CityRail network, which covers Sydney, the Central Coast and the Hunter, Illawarra and Blue Mountains regions.
