    Public Transport fares will be increasing from 3rd July 2011

     

    Adult Peak $4.70 / Interpeak $2.90

    Concession $2.40 / Interpeak $1.30

    School Child $2.30 / Interpeak $1.30

    2 Section $2.80 / Interpeak $2.00

    Adult Day $8.80

    Concession Day $4.40

    Child Day $4.40

     

    Multitrip Tickets have also increased in price, however valid multitrips and pre-sold tickets showing the old price can still be used until all trips on the ticket have expired.

    The system only checks the TYPE of ticket and not the price.

     

    Currant Seniors Free Travel arrangements remain unchanged.

     

    Also for parents remember that on weekends and all holidays you can take 2 kids for free with a Day Trip ticket.

    I have never known a country that puts fares up as often as this place does! Seems like they do it every few months - no wonder the cost of living is rising.

    The fares go up in the 1st week of july each year and on average buy only 10cents so it aint that bad.

    All the money that is taken on buses, trains, trams and ticket outlets all go straight to the goverment and not to the companys that run the services.

    Companys are paid to run the services for 8 years at a time just like transfield has under cut everyone else to run the north south corridor bus routes for $568 million for the next 8 years.

    Thats 12% less than any other comapny could afford to do it so expect lots of changes on the North South bus routes from the 2nd October.

    I'm sure the (student) multitrips go up more than once a year - doesn't seem that long ago they were $9.30...then $9.70....then $10.00...now $10.30.

    As far as I'm aware, they only ever go up in July, when all other government taxes, fees, etc. go up.

     

    It only seems like it's not that long ago - sign of getting older, LOL. Until I started writing it down, I always argued with the Pura Tap people that it was much less than a year since I had my last one installed. It just seems like the years go so quickly now! From the weekend, this year is half over!

    Yeah a new ticket system, thats why the validators keeps rejecting so many tickets at the moment or going wrong.

    There is gonna be new charge cards as well to save passengers carrying cash and will cut down on fare evaders as well plus end the confusion of the green tickets before 0901am and after 3pm.

    It supose to make it easier for drivers and passengers.

    Trouble with swipe passes is they tend to deduct a cash amount rather than just a trip so no more stocking up just before ticket hikes.
