The Public Transport Users Association today launched an on-line petition calling on the State Government to make single-use tickets available for occasional users and tourists, and stop compulsory Myki purchase becoming a barrier to public transport use.
The on-line petition, at www.mykisingles.com, calls for single-use 2-hour and daily tickets to be made available throughout Victoria at stations and on trams and buses, and for Myki top-ups to be allowed on trams.
PTUA President Tony Morton said that the petition was being launched as the full consequences of the State Government’s “mad” decision to scrap short-term tickets in Melbourne on December 29 were beginning to hit home amongst Victorians.
“As the warning signs go up, people are realising that they will be forced to buy a Myki smartcard before they can use trains, trams or buses in Melbourne, followed soon by the rest of Victoria.”
