“It beggars belief that we are seeing public transport fares increase in the middle of a fuel crisis,” said Greens Transport Spokesperson, Robert Simms MLC.

“At a time when petrol prices are soaring and cost of living is going through the roof, the government should be making public transport free to provide relief. Instead we’re seeing a fare hike.”

“The Malinauskas Government needs to step up here. This is a slap in the face to commuters.”
