KEVIN CONOLLY WELCOMES $50 WEEKLY PUBLIC TRANSPORT CAP STARTING TODAY
Written on the 24 June 2019 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly today welcomed the NSW Government's $50 Opal weekly travel cap which takes effect today, saving tens of thousands of regular public transport users up to $686 a year.
In welcoming the announcement, Mr Conolly said that the decision to slash the current cap by around 20 per cent will help to ease cost of living pressures for the Metro, bus and rail commuters all across the Riverstone electorate who use public transport regularly.
"The NSW Liberals and Nationals were elected to take the pressure off you, and get it done for NSW.
"From today, adults will pay no more than $50 a week and the concession cap will also be reduced from $31.60 to $25 per week." Mr Conolly said.
Opal benefits already in place will remain, including the Weekly Travel Reward, the Opal Transfer Discount and the $2.50 daily cap for Gold Opal cards.
The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government has saved households more than $800 million over the last year through a raft of cost of living measures, including cheaper Green Slips, $100 Active and Creative Kids vouchers and Free Rego.
