Reduced public transport costs offer residents of Caboolture real estate the opportunity to save money on their daily commute, which could be great news for those living in the local community.
Following the scrapping of the state's carbon tax, the saved $30 million has been put towards helping reduce the cost of the public transport. Premier Campbell Newman said delivering some living relief to everyone living in the region was the main purpose of the plan.
He went on to say regular weekday users of public transport would save around $297 a year, which can be put towards other aspects of life and allow them to spend the money on things that matter.
Furthermore, transport and main roads minister Scott Emerson said tackling affordability was a primary concern, with aims to help further improve these savings into the new year.
"We have added 3,000 additional bus and train services a week, we are the most reliable metro rail network in Australia and will be delivering real-time information for customers across the TransLink network in south east Queensland," said Mr Emerson in a 3 November statement.
This could be a great incentive to consider moving into the Sunshine State, with ongoing government commitment to passing savings onto residents.
