The Free Fares Campaign says that the public transport discounts introduced this year are an important step towards transport equity and emissions reductions. Their petition, launched yesterday, calls on the incoming Minister of Transport to retain these discounts: half-price public transport for Community Services Card holders and under-25s, half-price Total Mobility services, and free public transport for under-13s. In addition, they say the current discounts should be expanded to 100% Free Fares for all under-25s, tertiary students, Community Services Card holders, and Total Mobility Card holders and their support people.
The petition is here.
