On-the-spot fines are in place to crack down on fare evasion and anti-social behaviour on the Sydney Trains network.
Transport Officers and police have the right to request to see your ticket and concession card at any time and can issue on-the-spot fines.
Some examples are listed in the following table:
|Putting feet on seats||$100||$1100|
|Travelling without a valid ticket||$200||$550|
|Throwing an object in, at or from a public passenger vehicle or station||$200||$2200|
|Offensive language, offensive behaviour or spitting||$400||$1100|
|Damage vehicles or property through graffiti or vandalism||$400||$2200|
|Blocking doors or interfering with equipment||$400||$5500|
|Trespassing on railway land||$400||$5500|
If you have been fined you will have been given a penalty notice with payment required within 21 days. Payment can be made to the State Debt Recovery Office by mail, phone or online.
If you believe you have been unfairly fined you have the option of having the matter dealt with by a court. Depending on the circumstances you may also be entitled to a review by the State Debt Recovery Office.
