Have a look at this!

And to think that they haven't even got the bicycles integrated yet.

Negative people... have a problem for every solution.

Car sharing I think is legit because it discourages people from buying extra cars if they only use it occassionaly....It's part of the solution.

GoGet expands into Brisbane, integrates with public transport

GoGet expands into Brisbane, integrates with public transport

By Craig Simms   |   June 29, 2012

Like public transport, car sharing services attempt to reduce the number of vehicles on the road. While, typically ,GoGet issues RFID-enabled swipe cards that provide entry into its cars, in Brisbane, the company is offering a modified version of the cities TransLink's "Go Card", which already functions with buses, trains and ferries, allowing Brisbanites to seamlessly switch between the different modes of transport. To sweeten the pot, GoGet is offering each of its new Brisbane-based members a Go Card with AU$15 credit preloaded on it.

"Brisbane hasn't just joined other Australian cities by welcoming car share, it's actually leap-frogged all capital cities, by allowing Brisbanites to have a truly futuristic, completely integrated transport card," said Bruce Jeffreys, GoGet's co-founder. "Obviously, it will take time with some of our [other] cities. But, now, people can point to Brisbane and say 'they've provided the roadmap for how it can be done'."

Depends if they are "Modified" or they are just using the details already stored in the card to access the vehicle (eg: your gocard ID number).

I am waiting for a response from TransLink to a request as to whether said modification of go card is 'authorised'.

It won't be if Translink says no.

I'm curious to see if they just laminated a shim with a separate RFID card to the go card or if they actually installed a second dataset / program on the go card.

I too wonder what the "modification" really is. Does it change the card physically or electronically?

They could possibly just grabbing the card id number then just using that for the car authorisation (you swipe on and off similar to a gocard from my understanding)
