Half-price public transport fares begin

From Morning Report, 7:47 am on 1 April 2022

Commuters around the country are gearing up to make the most of half-price fares on public transport from Friday.

Prime Minister announced the nationwide discount on 14 March as part of a relief fund to address rising living costs.

The scheme will last for three months, but the government has signalled to more public transport investment in the upcoming budget.
