Multi-Modal Transport for New South Wales (Australia)

In the Australian State of New South Wales (NSW), there has been a recent integration of previously distinct, mode-oriented transport agencies to create a multi-modal transport 'cluster', led by a single integrated transport authority, Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW). This shift towards modal integration follows a trend in Australia and elsewhere in the world towards larger, more complex 'super-agency' structures designed to deliver integrated, joined up transport planning and better infrastructure services. This is within a context of public demands to deliver more and better services at substantially reduced costs.
