Locals are being invited to provide their feedback about rural and regional bus services.

IPART is investigating how fares should best be set for the services provided and how services might be improved to better meet passenger demand.

The review will also consider ways to address using bus services across borders including concession fares and different criteria between states.

There are around 83 different operators providing bus services in the Southern region of NSW.

Just 2.4% of bus trips are undertaken by full-fare paying adult passengers, which means that rural and regional bus services are almost entirely funded by taxpayers.

Local residents have until the 29th of June to make submissions.
