Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) is a statutory authority of the Government of New South Wales created on 1 November 2011 to manage the transport services in the state of New South Wales in Australia.
The authority subsumed the Transport Construction Authority and the Country Rail Infrastructure Authority, and plans and coordinates the functions of RailCorp, the State Transit Authority and Roads and Maritime Services. It also owned Metro Transport Sydney until the shut down of the company in July 2013, after the decommissioning of the Sydney Monorail and the Sydney light rail becoming under direct ownership of Transport for NSW.
The agency was created as an integrated transport authority with six divisions, each headed by a deputy director general:
- Customer experience – to ensure journeys are as simple and seamless as possible;
- Planning and programs – to consolidate planning for all modes and develop a comprehensive transport masterplan;
- Transport services – to ensure transport services cost-effectively meet the current and future needs of customers;
- Transport projects – to manage major projects;
- Freight and regional development – to coordinate freight services and facilities, with particular focus on regional NSW; and
- Policy and regulation – to develop and oversight polices and laws pertaining to transport across the state
