TfNSW signs contract with RIW provider Metro Trains Australia
30 September 2019
As previously communicated, Transport for NSW (TfNSW) is transitioning its Rail Industry Worker (RIW) program from the Pegasus card to a system delivered by Metro Trains Australia (MTA).
This week, TfNSW and MTA finalised and executed the contract. This will be effective from 1 October 2019. TfNSW managers and Principal Contractors will work together to organise the details of the roll out, which will take place on a site by site basis. All sites will transition to the new system by 13 December 2019.
Please note: If you only work at, or on, the Sydney Metro Central Station Mainworks or the Sydney Siding and Junction Project you are not required to transition to the new RIW system.
During the transition period, TfNSW managers, employees and contractors working on behalf of TfNSW must always ensure they know the Principal Contractor’s access requirements before trying to access a site (i.e. whether the site is using the Pegasus card or has transferred to the RIW system). If you are unable to access this information, you should carry both your Pegasus card and your RIW card until the end of 2019.
