Transport New South Wales (formally known as the New South Wales Ministry of Transport) was the New South Wales state government agency responsible for coordinating public transport across New South Wales. It had its headquarters in Chippendale, City of Sydney.[1]

The Ministry's responsibilities included bus and ferry policy, contracting and regulation, rail policy, fares and concessions, and taxi and hire car policy and regulation. It also coordinated funding arrangements for transport operators, including hundreds of local and community transport operators. A major program was the delivery of the State's free school transport scheme.

The Director General of Transport, Les Wielinga, reports to the State Minister for Transport, currently Andrew Constance.[2]

From the 1st November 2011, Transport for NSW was formed to lead the NSW Transport portfolio.
