Following the scrapped carbon tax, the Queensland government has decided to put this funding towards improving the state's public transportation options, which could be fantastic news if you live in Caboolture real estate. Being able to get around without the need of your vehicle is a great way to not only save money, but work towards saving the environment through a reduced carbon footprint as well.
Premier Campbell Newman and Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson said it would be up to the public to decide whether they wanted to pay less for their travel, or would prefer to see an increase in the frequency of trains, buses and ferries across the region.
"Over the next two weeks we are asking for feedback from all Queenslanders on how best to spend the carbon tax savings, which are about $30 million a year," said Mr Newman in a 31 August statement.
An online survey has been opened via the Translink website, which closes at midnight on Sunday 14 September. Now's you're chance to have a say about where the public funding for transportation goes, so take the opportunity to get your vote in for the future development of the Queensland state.
