News: Sydney commuters to travel for free on public transport network for 12 days during Easter holidays
Public transport will be free across Sydney’s entire network for 12 consecutive days during the Easter holidays, beginning on April 14th.
The free travel comes after weeks of tense negotiations between the state government and RTBU which culminated in a 24-hour shutdown of the train network last month.
The free travel will include trains, buses and ferries, but not private ferries, the airport line and Point to Point bus service.
The NSW Rail, Tram and Bus Union (RTBU) earlier said it would use industrial action to “force” the state government to offer free fares to commuters every Friday until June.
