$1 bus fares for early risers

action bus

SHANE Rattenbury is trying to entice commuters onto earlier ACTION bus services with discount fares before 7.30am.

“From next Monday 5 to Friday 30 May 2014, we will be rewarding ACTION early birds by reducing their MyWay fare to just $1 per trip. It will not only save you money, with an adult passenger making a saving of $1.84 per trip, but it will also allow you to beat the peak hour crowds,” Shane said.

“Commuters who recharge their MyWay card using Autoload or BPAY will bring in further savings, paying only $0.95 due to the 5 per cent discount received for paying via these methods.

“To take advantage of this offer tag on and off the bus with your MyWay card as usual on any bus before 7:30am on weekdays and the early bird fare will be applied automatically.”

The Minister is hoping to entice public servants being hit with new parking fees in the Parliamentary Triangle to give buses a go.
