News "Real" - Claims of public transport budget cuts

You may have noticed the story in the Sydney Morning Herald on Friday relating to public transport budget cuts. The story touched on concerns around the effect these efficiencies would have on Transport services across NSW.

So what’s the actual story?

Here are five fast facts about why we’re making these efficiency measures and their impact on our business:

  1. The efficiency savings apply to Transport for NSW only – not its operating agencies.
  2. There will be no effect on our unprecedented $41.5 billion infrastructure program.
  3. Any suggestion these efficiencies will affect safety, maintenance or frontline services is wrong.
  4. Over recent years, Transport operating agencies have delivered savings while continuing to improve customer satisfaction.
  5. Efficiency savings targets apply to all NSW government agencies, not just Transport for NSW.
