Transport for NSW

Transport for NSW replaced the RMS

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) is the government authority responsible for managing transport in New South Wales. It replaced Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) on 20 November 2019. All roads and transport functions were transferred to TfNSW.

TfNSW oversees all modes of transport in NSW, including road, rail, ferry, light rail, point to point, cycling, walking and regional air.

Service NSW handles registration, licensing, tolling, demerits and other vehicle transactions for TfNSW.

TfNSW was created under Transport Administration Act 1988 (the Act) and has these main objectives:

  • Plan a transport system that meets the needs and expectations of the public.
  • Promote safety, reliability and integrated decision-making across all public transport.
  • Ensure transport infrastructure projects are efficient.
  • Encourage economic development and investment.

It has many roles, including strategy, planning, policy, funding and procurement and special projects, such as light rail. Another important role is providing customers with information about transport and ticketing.

TfNSW agencies and business areas

Under the TfNSW umbrella are some well-known agencies and business areas, for example:

  • Centre for Maritime Safety
  • Centre for Road Safety
  • Freight Industry
