This information sheet presents estimates of air, rail and bus passenger fares between major Australian cities from 1960 to 2016. Data for nine intercity routes are provided in this analysis. Real dollar fare values for the medium-distance routes have declined across all modes since 1960 but the trends have not been similar and fare trends have often been disrupted.
