Changes to CityRail fares

Posted: Tuesday 8 December 2009

The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) today granted a submission for a fare increase which will take effect from Sunday 3 January 2010.

Single tickets for journeys from 5km to 65km will increase in price between 20 cents and 40 cents. For other journeys they will remain unchanged.

7 Day RailPass tickets will increase in price between $1 and $3 for journeys less than 175km and $4 for journeys more than 175km.

We recommend customers allow extra time on the first weekday of the fare increase, Monday 4 January to purchase their ticket.

The table below outlines the changes. Fare calculator data on this website will be updated when the changes are introduced.
