The expectation is that people access our property (including bus stations, train stations and ferry jetties and their immediate precincts, including forecourts, walkways and car parks) only as part of their public transport journey.
Conducting surveys or petitions is not permitted on PTA property. The sale of goods or services, or the distribution of printed advertising or promotional material (including discount vouchers) is not permitted – this includes leaving any sort of material on parked cars.
The distribution of free promotional merchandise (known as sampling) may be permitted by arrangement with APN.
The use of a drone on or over PTA property is not permitted. Activities such as the distribution of political material, filming, photography (other than by members of the general public using a hand-held camera to take pictures for private purposes) and charity collections are not allowed on PTA property without a permit. Permit applications should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Below are detailed guidelines for seeking an access permit. Applications should be lodged a week in advance; in some instances, we may require three weeks’ notice. All applications should be accompanied by proof of public liability insurance. Note that these activities are not permitted on board operating scheduled services.
Our prime consideration in evaluating applications is the safety and amenity of our passengers. Notwithstanding the conditions of a permit, applicants should follow the directions of PTA ground staff at all times.
Access to the rail reserve (the tracks and the fenced-off corridor of land through which the tracks run) is not permitted at any time under any circumstances. Trespassing on the rail reserve is an offence under the Railway Act, and offenders can be prosecuted.
