Changes to CityRail fares

Posted: Tuesday 16 December 2008

The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) today released its final determination of fares for CityRail passenger services for the next four years, starting from 4 January 2009.

Single tickets will increase in price by no more than $1.40 over four years, depending on the distance travelled. The cost of 7 Day RailPass tickets will rise by no more than $15 over four years.

From Sunday 4 January 2009

Single tickets for journeys less than 35km will increase in price between 20 cents and 60 cents. For longer journeys they will either remain the same or decrease by up to $8.

7 Day RailPass tickets for journeys less than 215km will increase in price between $1 and $3. For longer journeys they will decrease by up to $25.

The table below outlines the changes.

We recommend customers allow extra time on the first weekday of the fare increase, Monday 5 January to purchase their ticket.

Fare calculator data on this website will be updated when the changes are introduced.
