Family/group tickets ..

Greetings,

To further highlight what a poor deal families and groups of children/adults receive in south-east Queensland.

Herewith a quick scan of some initiatives from other states to assist family groups and the like onto public transport.

The lack of such sensible ticketing options in south-east Queensland is another compelling reason for an urgent fare review.
