Connecting with public transport: Ministry of Transport

Sydney has an extensive public transport network that includes RailCorp trains, State Transit Authority buses, Sydney Ferries Corporation ferries, light rail, private bus operators and taxis. Interchange occurs when people transfer from one of these modes of transport to another, or between two services of the same mode. In addition, people join or leave the public transport system on foot, by bicycle, and by car. This audit looks at how well Sydney's system of interchanges promotes increased use of public transport. It focuses on the critical role of the Ministry of Transport. This is an area of increasing investment and strategic importance. The State Plan 2006 aims to increase the share of peak hour journeys on the public transport system. The Metropolitan Strategy 2005 identifies strategic transport corridors and major centres. An $8 billion Metropolitan Rail Expansion Plan was announced in 2005. The report builds on audit work over the last few years in the NSW transport sector. It will inform planning and coordination of public transport infrastructure, and add to transparency in an area of increasing interest to commuters and the private sector.
