Free public transport for seniors

Oct 22, 2019 | News

Rod spoke to 3AW’s Neil Mitchel last week about why public transport should be free for seniors and students.

Looking at the benefits and impacts of making public transport free for seniors and students is part of the current parliamentary inquiry into extending the free tram zone.

We want to make public transport the best option for getting around our city – making it free for some groups will go a long way to changing the  attitudes and travelling patterns of Melbourne’s growing population.
