Toll drivers to pick up reimburses

Start the conversation

NSW drivers could get up to $750 a year back in road toll rebates under a new Service NSW scheme to ease the cost of living pressures.

Announcing the Toll Rebate Scheme, Premier Dominic Perrottet said about half a million motorists would receive cash rebates paid quarterly into their bank accounts under the Scheme – to be included in this month’s Budget.

“This new program will provide more relief, more often to more motorists,” Mr Perrottet said.

“The number of road users receiving toll relief will more than double,” he said.

“Almost 300,000 extra drivers will benefit,”

Mr Perrottet said that under the Scheme, motorists would receive a 40 per cent rebate for tolls incurred once they spent more than $375 in a year.

The Premier said the maximum annual benefit for each customer would be $750.

“The program will be in place for an initial two-year period, while the Government finalises and implements long term tolling reforms,” he said.

The newly announced Scheme differs from Service NSW’s existing Toll Relief which provides free or half-price vehicle registration to drivers who spend a certain amount on tolls.

Mr Perrottet said that for tolls incurred up to 30 June this year, road users could continue to receive vehicle registration relief until 30 June 2023.

“For tolls incurred from 1 July 2022, customers can access the new program and will receive their first rebate payment in early 2023, followed by quarterly payments,” he said.
