Fairer Fares

Listening to locals on public transport

Linus_and_Premier_Fairer_Fairs.jpg

As the representative of the Logan Electorate I’ve been listening to locals on public transport, that’s why I’ve fought for better services and fairer fares.

The Palaszczuk Government has taken this issue seriously. The fare review last year has come up with some good suggestions that take the pressures off commuters and families. This would reduce congestion on our roads so that everyone benefits. 

The alternative under the last LNP government is clear, many services were cut or reduced in Logan and fares increased - at the same time passenger numbers reduced and congestion on our roads increased.

I know that the cost of living is important and wherever and whenever I can I'll fight to contain costs or as in this case reduce the cost of something vital like public transport.
