Is that a 50% ticket price increase Action is trying to sneak in with MyWay?

By Snave81 11 February 2011 22

It seems that those of us who currently travel on Action buses using an adult Faresaver 10 may soon be subject to a 50% ticket price increase under the MyWay system. 

Currently, an adult Faresaver 10 costs $25.20.  This equates to a single fare cost of $2.52.  A nice little discount from the cash fare price. 

Under the MyWay system, the only advertised discount is 5% if you choose to use autoload or BPAY.  This would mean that instead of paying the $4.00 cash fare you would pay $3.80.  $3.80 represents a ticket price increase of 50% compared to the cost of a fare using the current adult Faresaver 10 ticket. 

Any thoughts?  Is this correct or will there be a new fare structure brought in once MyWay is implemented?

I think that might be because the people running ACTION are incompetent. Remember — they’re the people running ACTION after all!

Please quantify incompetent for me because I just don’t see it. I wait for bus, bus turns up on time & takes me to work.

They must be doing something right…..

Ditto – it works for me.

This is the Government that has already pushed up fares by 30% in their term and yet moaned about why nobody catches buses. So why the surprised faces?

People do catch buses & a 30% increase is bugger all considering the current cash fare is only $4.00.

Action is so cheap its not funny, try some of the bigger cities for train & tram fares & see how you go.
