Transport Access to Information Policy
Transport is committed to improving accountability and transparency by increasing access to government information. This commitment is outlined in our Transport Access to information Policy (pdf 134KB).
Access to Information
The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act) promotes transparency and encourages the proactive disclosure and timely release of government information.
The GIPA Act does this in four ways:
- Mandatory Proactive Release
- Authorised Proactive Release
- Informal release
- Access Applications
Mandatory Proactive Release (Open Access Information)
The GIPA Act requires NSW Government agencies to make "Open Access Information" publicly available, unless there is an overriding public interest against disclosure. Please click on the following links to access Transport for NSW's Open Access Information:

Authorised Proactive Release
