New point to point commissioner for NSW

New South Wales has named Anthony Wing as its next point to point transport commissioner, to replace Barbara Wise on July 1.

With the advent of ridesharing services and more modern developments for the ‘last mile’ portion of the commute, the NSW Government has made point to point a key focus of its transport policy in recent years.

Wise was appointed the state’s inaugural point to point commissioner in October 2016.

Transport minister Andrew Constance thanked Wise, who will take up a new role in Transport for NSW focused on regional transport outcomes. He said Wing would bring significant experience to the point to point role.

“As a proven regulator with deep experience in transport reforms, I am delighted that Anthony Wing has accepted the role,” Constance said.

“During his time at Transport for NSW, Anthony played a leading role in helping the NSW Government reduce red tape by reforming the laws and regulation applying to drivers and vehicles in NSW, including point to point transport services.”

Wing was previously a GM at the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, responsible for customer prices and cost-of-living, as well as transport competition and access.
