Zone 3 to disappear

A plan to restructure the fare system for Melbourne’s public transport is expected to be announced today. Read about it from this article from The Age. This would mean cheaper, simpler and a more flexible fare system for passengers. Makes me wonder though if this proposal has anything to do with elections next month?

I’m not one to complain as the proposal would benefit me as a regular train user. Could multi-level parkings at train stations, more bike lockers, additional express services, better trains, extensions to existing lines or introduction of new lines be in the cards? One is free to hope but I’m not holding my breath.
