No rise for public transport fares

By James Brown

There's no shortage of reasons to make the move into real estate in Morayfield and another has just been added to the list, as public transport fares are to stay down across Queensland.

The announcement was made by transport minister Scott Emerson, who said the planned 2.5 per cent rise would no longer take place.

Mr Emerson continued: "This year's fare freeze, on top of last year's five per cent fare reduction, is part of our strong plan to improve the frequency, reliability and affordability of the public transport network."

He revealed it wouldn't be just those living in urban areas who reap the benefits, as regional public transport users are also expected to see fares stay as they are.
