Tag on for free travel

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

TRANSPERTH is re­mind­ing pas­sen­gers at Bel­mont, South Perth and Vic­to­ria Park train sta­tions that they must still tag on when us­ing pub­lic trans­port on the free travel day on Mon­day, Novem­ber 3.

Pa­trons will still need to pay for park­ing if they drive to the sta­tion as free park­ing is not in­cluded in the of­fer.

The free travel is be­ing of­fered to Transperth pas­sen­gers to com­pen­sate them for fares paid be­tween July 1 and Novem­ber 1 this year, which in­cluded the 1.5 per cent car­bon tax.

“We need to keep a record of how many peo­ple are us­ing the sys­tem, so we would ask that pas­sen­gers still use their SmartRider as they would any other day,” Transperth spokesman David Hynes said.

“We will en­sure that no fare is taken from their SmartRiders.”

Pas­sen­gers who nor­mally use cash tick­ets will not need to buy one when they get to the sta­tion.
