Raise Your Voice on Ticketing

Article excerpt

I READ with interest Darren Polley's letter concerning the Go-card (QT 12/12). I too share the concerns with regular go card equipment failures and a lack of timely user reimbursement.

It is important to note however that QR is not responsible for this ticketing system, it is the realm of TransLink.

Many people have concerns with the Go-card system and particularly the high cost fare path. Please direct your concerns to TransLink and your elected political representatives and continue to write letters to editors.

Other states have moved forward with much better systems, support and fare structures for their systems. Only by constantly raising our concerns will we get an equitable outcome.

QR will be caught in the crossfire come January 4, the day the new fare structure bites, as well bus drivers and ferry crews.

Public transport operators are only doing their job, the ticketing system is TransLink's responsibility and this is where concerns should be directed.

All the Liberals have achieved by re-instating Howard's dinosaurs, is to extend their term in the wilderness by an extra three years.
