Transport for NSW

Transport for NSW replaced the RMS

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

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
  • Work to make transport infrastructure projects more efficient
  • Encourage economic development and investment.

TfNSW looks after all modes of transport in NSW, including road, rail, ferry, light rail, point to point, cycling, walking and regional air. It has many roles, including strategy, planning, policy, funding and procurement and special projects, such as light rail in Sydney, Parramatta and Newcastle.

Another important role is providing customers with information about transport and ticketing.
