Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House seniors travel rates on trains as of October 1st. Brisbane City Council will provide seniors free off-peak travel on Brisbane buses, citycats and ferries to make it easier for seniors to enjoy Brisbane. This free off-peak travel should also apply to trains.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to provide people travelling on seniors go cards free off-peak travel on trains.
