Will the Government still control the fares?

Yes. Fares will continue to be set by the Government, just as they are today.

Passengers will also continue to use their Opal cards as they currently do and concessions will be protected.  This is the case for all public and private bus services that run across NSW.

Earlier this year, the NSW Government introduced the $50 Opal weekly travel cap, saving tens of thousands of regular public transport users up to $686 a year. The concession cap was also lowered from $31.60 to $25 a week.
