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.
